Open Data Charter
Executive Director
London
Ania is the Executive Director of the Open Data Charter, a collaboration between between governments and expert organisations working to open up data based on a shared set of global principles. From 2012-2016, she served as General Director of Open Data for the National Digital Strategy, delivering a key presidential mandate for the Open Data Policy in Mexico. She established data literacy and capacity building programs across more than 200 public institutions, developed tools and platforms to enable the release of standardised data, built channels to increase the ability of citizens to inform data release and started a national open data network of over 40 cities working to improve service delivery. Ania launched a Datalab fellowship program to improve evidence based policymaking, including programs to reduce maternal mortality, increase financial inclusion in Mexico’s largest social development program and enhance resilience against natural disasters. She worked to strengthen open data commitments globally, such as with the G20, the Anti-corruption Summit and multiple regional and bilateral declarations. Ania sits on several Advisory Boards, including the Technical Advisory Group of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, Apolitical Data Editorial Board, Global Integrity, a non-profit organisation that supports progress toward open, accountable and effective governance in countries and communities around the world and the civic tech organization Codeando Mexico. She holds a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Columbia University and has prior experience as founder and director of a non-profit organisation that focused on promoting citizen engagement in shaping Mexico City’s public agenda.
