(POSTPONED – COVID) Redesigning our world
Join SheSays LA and XPRIZE as we shine a light on the biggest invisible problem in our world, the Gender Gap in data.
Everything in our world is designed using data, but important data from women and girls is incomplete or missing. Whether it’s car safety, protective gear, or medical treatment; the world we live in is built and tested with incomplete data sets and the results are shocking.
When Apple launched its latest Health Tracker app in 2014, it promised to offer ‘your whole health picture’, but it forgot a period tracker. Google and Alexa can add tampons to your shopping list, but only if they hear you, and women’s voices are less likely to be registered. It’s nothing personal, the world just wasn’t designing with women in mind.
All of that is about to change as XPRIZE sets off to disrupt the status quo and close this harmful gender gap in data. Let’s look towards the new frontier of Gender Equity, reflecting on where we’ve been, where we are today and where we want to be tomorrow.
