Unseen and Unsolved: Women Helping Women Through Data Science

March 25, 2021 12pm ET

In her book “Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men,” Caroline Criado Perez illuminates the ways institutional bias and gendered information gaps impede the development of solutions that materially affect the lives of women. Many of the social problems disproportionately affecting women remain unseen and unsolved. We are convening women who work with and through technology and data science to raise the visibility of and create solutions for these challenges – women committed to helping women.

Ginger Zielinskie, Chief Strategy Officer at data.org moderates a discussion with four powerhouse women in data science for a robust discussion of the challenges and tangible ways women are illuminating unseen problems and delivering innovative solutions with data science and technology.
