Smart City PDX is prioritizing projects that reduce inequities for people who have been left behind in our city, specifically people of color and people with disabilities.
Equity priorities and privacy principles guide the Smart City PDX program. City of Portland data and technology projects need to meet community needs. Processes and policies help guide projects to protect privacy and improve resiliency. Measurable community benefits should also show progress on equity goals.
All projects and policies need to be responsive to Portlander's needs and feedback. Smart City PDX has developed two foundational efforts to guide our work. These efforts are the Smart City PDX Priorities Framework and the proposed City of Portland Privacy and Information Protection Principles.
