Pia Waugh

Department of Internal Affairs
Service Integration Lead

Pia Waugh (@piawaugh) is an open government and data ninja [1] who has recently joined the digital transformation and gov as a platform cabal. She works within the (public sector) machine to enable greater transparency, democratic engagement, citizen-centric design and real, pragmatic actual innovation in the public sector and beyond. She believes that tech culture has a huge role to play in achieving better policy planning, outcomes, public engagement and a better public service all round. She is also trying to do her part in establishing greater public benefit from publicly funded data, software and research. In 2011 Pia ran a national policy co-design for Australia's National Cultural Policy which focused on how digital culture  contributes to policy development. In 2017 Pia is currently the Service Integration Lead in the Service and System Innovation Branch of the Department of Internal Affairs.

Significantly, Pia was named as one of the Top 100 Most Influential Women in Australia for 2014.
[1] Pia has also studied martial arts since 1990, so she is more qualified than most to this title

Pia's keynote address is sponsored by Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland War Memorial Museum.
