Global and Regional Influencing
Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) 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 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Combined with compelling storytelling, a mixture of qualitative and quantitative data can serve as tools to help drive policymakers to recognise issues that have previously been ignored or under-prioritised. 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, EM2030 aims to go beyond the facts and figures by presenting compelling and clear content – including human-centred 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
The Gender Advocates Data Hub connects our regional and national work. The online platform enables advocates to easily unpack insights and findings from our 2019 SDG Gender Index. Explore the hub to compare country performances across regions, generate an interpretation of global trends, explore the SDGs based on cross-cutting thematic areas of interest, or read about the girls and women who are using data to drive action in their communities.
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 Gender Advocates Data Hub. 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.
