Data for Gender Equality

We increasingly see the world through quantitative data. What data we use shapes how we understand the world – what we understand to be urgent social challenges and injustices, analyze their causes and imagine creative solutions. They play a key role in framing political discourses, informing policy making, and in monitoring progress. At the same time, the landscape of data has seen radical transformations in the last decade with the expanding use of big data and artificial intelligence, as well as moves to democratize data through community generated data. This course focuses on data used in promoting gender equality – whether in decision making, advocacy, monitoring and evaluation, or mobilizing action. Students will learn how to critically assess data use and to develop the ability to use data effectively.
