ISSUE AREAS

Each year, the i-team focuses on what we call “Issue Areas,” targeting the most pressing problems in Los Angeles as determined by the Mayor. Once an issue area is assigned and established, the i-team conducts thorough analysis and carries out user-centered research in collaboration with our partners: City Departments, key community leaders, and residents in order to identify the root causes of the issue. We then develop, implement, and refine initiatives that are ultimately transitioned to relevant City Departments for long-term sustainment. Below are some of the strategic issue areas that we have focused on in Los Angeles since beginning our work in late 2015:
