This POSC 395 professional development event takes place on Wednesday, April 3 at 2:00 p.m. PT in the CPF office at SOS B15. POSC 395 students must attend at least two professional development events throughout the semester.


Join us for a coffee talk with Ron Galperin, elected as Controller of the City of Los Angeles in 2013 and again in 2017. During his time in office, Galperin reconsidered how the City works with data, technology, and maps. He created L.A.’s first open data portal, Control Panel LA, which details every dollar spent on goods and services. Because of his work, L.A. was named “No. 1 Digital City” by the U.S. City Open Data Census three years in a row. Government Technology Magazine also named Galperin one of its “Top 25 Doers, Dreamers and Drivers.” In launching the first ever L.A. Equity Index, Galperin pioneered the use of data to promote greater social, economic, and educational equity.


USC is proud to have Ron Galperin as a Spring 2024 Fellow at the Center for the Political Future. You can read a detailed Ron Galperin biography on the CPF website.


Students interested in attending should contact for more information and the signup link.
