Data and Gender: Thinking Critically

Oct 2016
Counted and included: how do we close the gender gap in open data?
SDG 5 sets lofty targets for gender equality, and open data has the potential to be a critical tool in delivering a more just and equal world for women. But like any technology, whether it lives up to that promise will be influenced by who designs it – and with which ends in mind. While there are many facets of diversity worthy of discussion, on this panel we will focus on gender inclusivity.The panelists will share their experiences on finding accurate gender data, conceiving open data projects with women as creators and end-users in mind, and promoting the participation of more women in the open data field.
