Keynote: Gina M. Raimondo, Governor of Rhode Island
Named one of the World's top 50 leaders by Forbes Magazine, we have the incredible honor of announcing that Rhode Island Governor Gina M. Raimondo will be sharing her experiences and leadership thoughts at #InfoGov17.
On January 6, 2015, Gina M. Raimondo became the 75th Governor of Rhode Island and the state’s first female governor.
Among her accomplishments in her first two years in office is turning around what had been an economy that lagged behind the country and the rest of the region. Now boasting an unemployment rate below the national average in the first time in over 10 years, Rhode Island has been attracting companies and new jobs at a breakneck pace.
There have been two major technology rollouts during her tenure - a unified health/services platform and replacing the systems at the Department of Motor Vehicles (from a 1980s DOS-based system). The Governor will be sharing some of her experiences, both good and bad, in government technology rollouts.
Our team is absolutely humbled and honored to welcome Rhode Island Governor Gina M. Raimondo to Keynote #InfoGov17.
