March 26, 2024 @ 12:30 – March 26, 2024 @ 13:30

The IGC Secretariat cordially invites you to the IGC Lunch and Learn: Mapping gender (in)equality: The critical role of data on Tuesday 26 March from 12:30 to 13:30 CET.

Data plays a pivotal role in policymaking across all sectors. However, data collection often falls short of addressing considerations of sex, gender and diversity. As a result, policies risk inadvertently increasing biases and discrimination. Collecting data on gender and other intersecting forms of inequality is essential to combatting stigmas and stereotyping, as well as ensuring that women and girls in all their diversity are empowered to achieve their full potential.

During this second Lunch and Learn session of 2024, speakers will exchange experiences regarding how organisations are developing and using methodologies in disaggregated data collection and analysis with the goal of promoting inclusive, evidence-based decision-making. They will share challenges surrounding data collection and case studies of effective solutions, as well as discuss the impact of these methodologies on tracking progress and influencing policymaking. The event will also delve into opportunities for collaboration and training across different organisations.

We will offer this event in a hybrid format. If you are available to attend in-person, please join us on the seventh floor of the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), where lunch will be served. Please note that in-person attendance is limited to 20 participants and that spots will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional information about the event, including details about the speakers, can be found in the attached Concept Note.
