Celebrating Women & Girls in Data:
During the inaugural U.N. World Data Forum, AODC hosted an Invigorating lunchtime event celebrating women and girls from townships in Khayelitsha to highrises in New York City sharing their work, successes, and hopes for global data. Opportunities for network and participation in ongoing communities and future events.
The World Data Forum promises a gathering of elite minds and missions from across the globe to push forward data for global goals that affect each of us. How can we be sure that those directly affected by policies, partnerships, and statistics are benefiting the people we aim to help the most? Political leaders, students, entrepreneurs, scientists, artists, healthcare workers, and farmers share their work with data, what data they need, what data they have, and what their hopes are for the work coming out of World Data Forum.
