Everything You Need To Know About ‘Data Bias’ And How It Affects Women

By Sophie Oddo

At Urban List, we believe it’s important to recognise trailblazers who align their values with actions, which is why we’ve teamed up with Bank Australia to share their inspiring stories.

Implementing positive action to help make the world a better place takes courage, strength and tenacity. But to encourage and help others to do the same, well... that’s worth celebrating. 

One of those people is Zoe Condliffe — a data activist, gender advocate, researcher and Founder & CEO of She’s A Crowd. Zoe started her first social enterprise in rural Cambodia and has since gained experience across the university, NGO and start-up sectors, becoming an outspoken leader in the social change sector. In 2016 Zoe started working in gender and youth advocacy for Plan International Australia, where she pioneered the digital crowdmapping tool for street harassment, Free To Be, the Youth Activist Series and Girls’ Walks. From there she decided to start her company She’s A Crowd, to leverage the power of storytelling to address the gender data gap.

Tune into the video below to discover what gender data bias is, how it affects women and why it's so important to work towards closing the gap.
