Data for Social Impact: Roundtable Discussion Summary Report

Data for Social Impact (DSI) is an initiative that builds data capacity and collaboration among St. Louis social sector organizations working to increase impact for and with the communities they serve. As part of this initiative, the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis (SPI) is working to develop a set of free, accessible training and programming opportunities tailored to the priorities and needs of social sector organizations seeking to build capacity in these areas.

To inform this effort, SPI hosted a series of public roundtable discussions in partnership with the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth,, and the St. Louis Regional Data Alliance in 2021. This report documents the information gathered at the first two discussions.
