Gender Lens

under / over

We’re sharing underrepresented individuals’ overlooked stories in data to highlight the need for and benefit of gender diversity in data.


There will be no justice until women and gender-diverse individuals participate in the entire data for social impact value chain. 

As part of’s work to put a spotlight on gender equity in data for social impact (DSI), under / over aims to raise awareness of successful ways for women and gender-diverse individuals to be represented in data and to themselves harness the power of data to drive social impact. 

In under / over, our stories help us explore what excellence looks like in the entire data for social impact value chain. Together, we can create a more inclusive data culture and increase the percentage of women entering and remaining in the DSI workforce.
