Breakout Session

The Power of Data to Create and Break Gender Stereotypes

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring

The gender data gap is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women, and it has created a pervasive but invisible bias with a profound effect on women’s lives. In fact, most workplace and supply chain management systems do not include a gender lens to account for women’s unique needs and rights, which prevents women from thriving in or even entering the supply chain workforce. Mainstreaming gender-sensitive dimensions across the different policies and processes is essential to promote gender equality and advance women across supply chains. In this session, we will explore how the lack of gender data leads to gaps in knowledge and solutions across product development, workplaces, global supply chains, and customer engagement.
