Data, Democracy and Gender Parity
It is now widely understood that failure to consider intersecting axes of oppression often results in unintended consequences, reinforcing systemic biases and pushing some people even further into the margins. However, many people in the social justice field are only just beginning to understand why a data-driven approach is essential to equity work and even fewer people have a firm grasp of how essential high-quality data is.Peter Mousaferiadis, CEO & Founder
As part of Democracy and Gender Alliance Week 2023, we will be running a ‘Diversity Analysis’ to uncover and celebrate the cultural richness of our community.
Peter Mousaferiadis will deliver a highly interactive talk that deep dives into data-driven gender equity work whilst revealing the results of all the participants in the Diversity Atlas survey during the event.
We are excited to announce that the Council of Europe has selected Diversity Atlas to be showcased at the World Forum for Democracy as one of the global initiatives that is contributing to a more inclusive world and its potential to shape global policies.
The World Forum for Democracy is a unique platform for political decision-makers and activists to debate solutions to key challenges for democracies worldwide. Peter Mousaferiadis will be presenting Diversity Atlas to the Forum on Tuesday, 7 November in Strasbourg, France.
