Despite decades of investments in promoting gender equality, gender data gaps continue to impede our ability to understand the lived experiences of women and girls. 

Join the Center for Global Development, Data2X, and Open Data Watch for an event that will move the conversation from identifying gender data problems to finding practical solutions drawn from a forthcoming report by Data2X and Open Data Watch, entitled “Transforming the Data Landscape: Solutions to Close Gender Data Gaps.” In addition to launching the report, the event will feature innovators as they navigate challenges and opportunities for increased and improved gender data.
