EM2030 UN World Data Forum Webinar – Gender Data Gaps

6 October 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Equal Measures 2030 is convening a webinar in the context of the UN World Data Forum that explores how demand-driven partnerships have addressed gender data and accountability gaps. The webinar will highlight good practices and lessons in establishing data collaboratives or partnerships with women’s and girls’ rights organizations that have explored addressing gender data needs in relation to different themes (e.g., education, health, violence, etc.) and efforts to address or close these data gaps. The webinar will present innovative partnerships between grassroots organizations and national statistical offices, academics, multilaterals and amongst other grass roots organizations.

The event will be moderated by Ashley Monson of the Tableau Foundation and she will pose a series of questions to a diverse set of panelists that will aim to elicit practical lessons they faced in both the process and outcomes of their initiative and collaboration with gender advocates in data production or use. The session will also include an opportunity for participants to pose questions to each of the panelists.

Panelists include:
Kathy AuCoin, Statistics Canada
Therese Mahon, WaterAid
Dennis Mwaura, GROOTS Kenya
Caneble Oganga, Kenya National Bureau of Statistics
Marni Sommer, Columbia University
Elaine Unterhalter, University College London
Relebohile Moletsane, University of KwaZulu-Natal
