In 2018, INFORMS launched a new advocacy initiative to raise awareness with decision makers in Washington on the application and impact of O.R. and analytics. This initiative includes an annual Government & Analytics Summit that invites policymakers from Capitol Hill, federal agencies and other policy stakeholders to learn about exciting and impactful ways in which these scientific and mathematical processes are being used to save lives, save money and solve problems in the public and private sectors. Joining me for this episode to discuss this year's Summit is Laura Albert, Assistant Dean for Graduate Affairs in the College of Engineering and Professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Vice President of Marketing, Communications and Outreach on the INFORMS Board of Directors, and the Chair of 2019 Summit.
