The Rhode Island Office of Innovation was launched in January 2016 as a governor's initiative--meant to support and accelerate sustainable innovation in Rhode Island's public systems. We are a small but mighty team, working across sectors--in education, digital equity, and state government--to help redefine how government can best leverage its bully pulpit, its convening power, and its leadership role to best support all Rhode Islanders.
We operate with a portfolio of about fifteen active projects--all of varying sizes and scopes and all with key local implementation partners at the core. We tackle problems in non-traditional ways and use unique-to-government and pilot strategies to attain bold goals for our state. And we ground all our work in the structures and mindsets of improvement science and design thinking.Description of Work
