Harris was one of several presenters during the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s "”Safety Datapalooza” on Sept. 14, where over 500 government and private industry leaders met at the White House’s Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

The event brought together visionaries from the private, nonprofit, and academic sectors to highlight new tools available to citizens through the White House safety.data.gov initiative, according to an article in the September 21 DOL Newsletter. “We are tapping the creativity, ingenuity and expertise of communities through our app challenges, social media engagement and other forward-thinking efforts to harness technology for the public good,” added Harris.

According to an article about the event on AOL Government, Harris said “advances in technology are rarely one person's thinking … real advances are collective efforts." The article also says Harris promoted DOL’s latest national challenge contest, which is offering $30,000 in prizes for the best new tools for educating the public—especially younger workers—about safety risks and protections in the workplace.
