Everything you need to know about ‘data bias’ and its impact on women
At Urban List, we believe it is important to recognize pioneers who align their values with their actions, which is why we have partnered with Bank Australia to share their inspiring stories.
Taking positive action to help make the world a better place takes courage, strength and tenacity. But encouraging and helping others to do the same, well … it’s worth celebrating.
One of those people is Zoe Condliffe – a data activist, gender equality advocate, researcher and founder and CEO of She’s A Crowd. Zoe launched her first social enterprise in rural Cambodia and has since gained experience in the academic, NGO and start-up sectors, becoming an outspoken leader in the social change sector. In 2016, Zoe began working in gender and youth advocacy for Plan International Australia, where she pioneered the digital crowdmapping tool for street harassment, Free To Be , the Youth Activist Series and the Girls’ Walks. From there, she set out to start her company She’s A Crowd, in order to harness the power of storytelling to bridge the gender data gap.
