This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

Data Quality Campaign
Senior Associate
As a senior associate on the policy and advocacy team at DQC, Taryn helps identify, advocate for, and support changes to policy and practice that improve the ability of everyone with a stake in education to use data to make decisions. She focuses on the role of policy in creating the conditions that allow teachers to use data in service of student learning, and empower families with information so they can be partners in their children’s education. She also supports DQC’s work to inform the field about the policy landscape for safeguarding student data and to help state policymakers understand their role and what they can do.

Before joining DQC in 2014, Taryn was a research associate for Education Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute, a public policy think tank. There she helped write and disseminate analysis and recommendations on a number of issues such as digital learning, parent empowerment, and school system reform. Taryn earned a bachelor’s degree in Sociology at American University.
