The event will aim to bring together gender and data specialists from the European Commission, EU development partners, and UN Women for an interactive dialogue to explore how data can be used as an important tool to reinvigorate progress on gender equality and the implementation of the EU Gender Action Plan III. It will also showcase how UN Women is scaling up data-driven action through its signature initiative on gender data “Women Count”.

Irene, representing EIGE, joins as a guest speaker to present crucial findings from the Gender Equality Index on how EU Member States are faring on gender equality and reflections on how gender data can drive progress on gender equality for the EU.
