About this event

Leverage existing data.

Increase data and funding.

Fuel political will.

Transform the enabling environment.

Too often women and girls are invisible to decision-makers because data about their lives and experiences is incomplete or missing. These data gaps are a problem in a world where data drives policy and decision-making. If we’re not measuring it, we can’t change it.

With gender data and accountability a cross-cutting issue for the Generation Equality Forum, speakers from Africa, Asia-Pacific and with a global remit will highlight why gender data is vital, what their organisation is doing to drive action as well as discussing the commitments they seek from others and the priorities for Action Coalitions to lift standards and resources for tangible results. Also hear the gender data demands of diverse feminist voices around the world.

The event will have live closed captions.
