Roundtable Event: Using Data to Promote Equitable Outcomes

Monday, November 1, 2021 | 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Virtual Event

Data is a powerful tool that can improve services and impact, yet many social sector organizations lack the resources or capacity to leverage data effectively. This event is a part of a public roundtable discussion that is designed to promote dialogue and solicit feedback about what organizations need to move forward in this work.

Using Data to Promote Equitable Outcomes
How can social sector organizations use data in ways that confront systemic inequities, promote equitable outcomes, and minimize harm? This session will examine data use in the social sector through an equity lens. Participants will think through real-world scenarios and share their own experiences in grappling with equity issues and ethical dilemmas in the process of working with data.

Data Science for Social Impact (DSSI) 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.

This initiative is a partnership between the Social Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, in collaboration with an advisory committee, the St. Louis Regional Data Alliance, and data.org.
