Policy/Strategy Officer at Devon County Council
Building participation – from open source to open data
Lucy worked in opto-electronics and fine arts before moving into local government, spending the last 15 years at Devon County Council in analytics and policy roles. Alongside the day job Lucy is also co-founder of the ODI Devon Node and Devon Open Data Forum, and an illustrator and sketch note artist using physical and digital media. Building on her experience of working at the extreme ends of the technical/creative spectrum, she regularly advocates for better communication between technical and non-technical groups and the importance of making technological advances both useful and accessible.
