Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, 108th Mayor of New York City Michael R. Bloomberg, United Nations Foundation President and CEO Kathy Calvin, and Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton will bring together leading experts for a discussion on the vital role data plays in closing gender gaps, and how lack of data can inhibit progress for women and girls globally.
The event will take place Monday, Dec. 15, 2014, at Bloomberg Philanthropies in New York City.
The event will highlight the work of Data2X – a partnership launched by Secretary Clinton in July 2012 to identify and spur efforts to fill gender data gaps – and unveil new partnerships to improve data collection and use for women and girls. Better gender data are needed to guide policies, set targets, and monitor progress for women and girls.
The event will feature keynote remarks from Michael R. Bloomberg and Secretary Clinton, as well as an expert panel moderated by Chelsea Clinton.
