Event Speakers

G.T. Bynum, Mayor of Tulsa, has pioneered and executed an equal-opportunity platform, establishing the Tulsa Equality Indicators Report, the Mayor’s Office of Resilience and Equity, and the New Tulsans Initiative, all of which use data to measure various forms of inequality and provide innovative solutions to combat them. In addition, Mayor Bynum takes education seriously and earlier in his term signed an executive order giving City employees the opportunity to participate in Reading Partners. His Administration is also implementing Vision Tulsa, the largest economic development capital improvements program in Tulsa history.


John Tapogna, President of ECONorthwest, will present the report analysis. John founded ECONorthwest’s social policy practice, which provides rigorous analytic and evaluation support to education, human services, workforce development, and criminal justice programs across the United States. Prior to joining ECONorthwest, he was a budget analyst for the U.S. Congressional Budget Office, where he forecasted the nation’s welfare spending and estimated the cost of key congressional legislation.  John has been an ImpactTulsa partner since our founding and provides us with a national context for our local data work.
