Data alone does not change the world, but it can empower advocates by revealing insights, shedding light on marginalized groups, identifying needs, and informing which policies work in what context and which do not, in the drive for positive and lasting progress towards equality. This information will be critical to reaching the SDGs by 2030. Joint efforts by the UN, civil society and the private sector can play an instrumental role in advocating for the rights of girls and women – when investors and business leaders contribute their voices and provide platforms for the voices of girls and women to advocate for gender equality laws and policies, policymakers will listen. When combined with a strong evidence base, the power to amplify the call for equal rights can be harnessed towards transformative change.

For this session, Equal Measures 2030, a cross-sectoral partnership focused on connecting data and evidence with advocacy and action for gender equality, will share the cross-sectoral work they’re already developing on the SDGs, including lessons learned, challenges and exciting next steps.  In an interactive discussion, we’ll explore how data and technology can, and must, be harnessed to accelerate progress and why achieving the Global Goals cannot be done without collaboration across sectors.
