What is the Gender Data Gap – and how can we tackle it?

Cars are primarily designed, built, and tested by male engineers using male data, so they are built with men in mind. Women have been dying from misdiagnosed cardiovascular problems for decades.

Gender Gap affects military services, health and medicine. It also creates a vicious cycle of underrepresentation in leadership across the nation. When leaders are primarily male, they are less likely to consider women as they develop and implement policy.

The majority of data we have in the world is based around the male body and the typical male life pattern.

My dear friend Ms Eva Schoenwald would like to invite you all to a virtual discussion about the Gender Data Gap issue, why it is important and how to deal with it.
