Global and Regional Influencing
Equal Measures 2030 works with influencers across civil society, the private sector, the media, multilateral institutions, and beyond to help create a “race to the top” for national governments to achieve gender equality in line with the SDGs.
Combined with compelling storytelling, a mixture of qualitative and quantitative data can serve as tools to help drive policymakers to recognize issues that have previously been ignored or under-prioritized. And where political will is lacking, a gender equality movement that engages the public with powerful stories and data – driven by the collective voice of our partners – can help build momentum to move an issue to the top of the policy agenda.
In all of our communications work, Equal Measures 2030 aims to go beyond the facts and figures by presenting compelling and clear content – including human-centered storytelling, success stories, scorecards, visualizations and more – that brings data to life. By adding more value to data – through analysis, storytelling, and the creative use of technology and other tools – we are better able to go beyond the numbers and produce further evidence that inspires and drives real change.
The Gender Advocates Data Hub
In September 2018, Equal Measures 2030 launched an interactive online platform that brings together our global, regional and national data and influencing products, including our SDG Gender Index and Advocate Survey findings.
The online platform contains data visualizations, stories behind the data, advocate survey findings, partner and industry resources and more. Data dashboards and country profiles can be used to drill down from the Index to deeper analysis and storytelling on specific themes, goals and targets.
Our approach is tailored to meet the needs of girls’ and women’s movements and advocates, particularly at local and national levels, but we encourage decision makers, media, the private sector, civil society, the data community, academia and the general public to also make use of the new online platform. Our interactive and easy-to-use online platform aims to become a go-to resource for evidence-based policy and advocacy on gender equality and a broader resource for tracking gender and development-related progress.
