2018 Conference

The goal of the third annual Philadelphia Behavioral Science Initiative Conference is to show attendees how to identify cognitive biases in their own lives, and to get people thinking about how to apply behavioral science to their own teams, projects, and policies. While the past two conferences were largely lecture-based, this year we plan on having a significant interactive component along with a variety of speakers. The hope is to create a fun workshop environment to get people excited about the huge potential of behavioral science applications in the public sector.

GovLabPHL is the organizer of the 2018 conference. GovLabPHL is a multi-agency team led by the Mayor's Policy Office focused on developing innovative and evidence-based practice in city government. The team is comprised of City employees from the Department of Revenue, the Office of Transportation and Infrastructure Systems, Office of Open Data and Digital Transformation, and the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity.
