Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of gender data for public policy development has increased, particularly improving its quality and availability. The need to enhance and expand the gender data landscape relies on strong evidence that gender statistics are a powerful tool for policy makers and development practitioners to make visible the magnitude of the different manifestations of gender inequality.
In order to address this need, we have created the “Gender Data 201” course. This is a free online course that equips participants with the skills needed to lead gender-responsive advocacy work, decision-making processes, and policy design and implementation activities. It builds on the “Gender Data 101” course, expanding technical data skills and fostering a global community of gender data practitioners that can lead to advancement towards reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
