Director - Data Governance, McGraw-Hill Education
Roberta Pape
I’m passionate and fascinated about data and its hold on our lives. The massive amounts of data in our world and how we manage it has a direct impact on the quality of both our professional and personal lives. The intricacies of that data is like a large, multi-dimensional puzzle. As the purpose of each piece is defined and used appropriately, once it’s then pieced together it builds a beautiful, clear, and productive picture! I worked in IT for many years before transitioning over to the business side to lead data governance for MHE. Which has given me a unique skill-set of being able to work through the business need and purpose of data and also the technical comprehension of maintaining it.

Since I started this DG journey at McGraw-Hill Education, a major focus has been blending DG and its management seamlessly into our company operations so that it becomes part of the fabric of what we do at MHE.

While not examining data, I enjoy traveling, reading, riding motorcycles, bonfires and taking in our magnificent vista overlooking the Mississippi river valley.
