Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have in our data-driven societies. But what does embracing equity mean in the context of data? How can we think of data governance in relation to equity and what actions are being taken to address this core component of inclusive and sustainable digital transformation?
On the occasion of International Women’s Day and its 2023 theme #EmbraceEquity, the Datasphere Initiative spoke to a range of policy professionals in the Datasphere Initiative’s global network, to ask them: why equity should be a core goal in policy and technical approaches to responsibly unlocking the value of data?
Participants shared their perspectives and identified specific actions that can be taken to make the invisible visible and ensure our use of data shapes the world for the better.
