Author, broadcaster and feminist campaigner, Caroline Criado Perez is all about exposing data bias in a world designed for men.
In her Discovery Summit talk, Perez will tackle the topic for our audience, citing one example after another. She supports her claims with data – a lot of data. After sharing case studies and research results, she’ll answer your questions about the hidden ways in which women are excluded from the very building blocks of the world we live in.
The author of the acclaimed book “Invisible Women,”CriadoPerez will explore the gender data gap and invisible bias that have a profound effect on women’s lives. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when entire segments of a population are ignored and gathering data about them isn’t even considered...simply look around.
Woman, man or child, you’ll have some “aha” moments come out of this conversation. And, we hope, a conviction to be inclusive in how we collect and analyze data moving forward.
Be sure toregister for Discovery Summit Americas, make room on your calendar for the week of October 12, and get ready to look at this “timeworn topic through the revealing lens of data.” The Guardian newspaper also said that “this book uses data like a laser.” You can read that review here.
