Gates Foundation, Plan International Partnership ‘Equal Measures 2030’ Aims To Improve Gender Data To Guide SDG Efforts

Devex: Gates, Plan-funded global gender data partnership takes shape
“…This week, Equal Measures 2030 — a new global cross-sector initiative born from hours of meetings in London conference rooms and offices in six focus countries from El Salvador to Indonesia — emerged after a year of research and tough decisions. … The partnership, funded by Plan International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, considers itself a start-up with resources to hire a full-time seven-member team and initiate pilots in six countries. The goal? Ensure data is transformed into advocacy and action by making sure women’s groups, rights advocates, and decision makers have easy-to-use data and evidence to guide efforts in reaching the Global Goals by 2030…” (Rogers, 9/20).
