Data2X is a collaborative technical and advocacy platform dedicated to improving the quality, availability, and use of gender data to make a practical difference in the lives of women and girls worldwide. We work with UN agencies, governments, civil society, academics, and the private sector to close gender data gaps, promote expanded and unbiased gender data collection, and use gender data to improve policies, strategies, and decision-making. There has been increasing attention to gender data, and some increase in dedicated funding for gender data and statistics. However, there is work to be done to match donor priorities and investments with an increase in production, analysis, and use of gender data at country, regional, and global levels.
We are seeking a senior professional to join our team, with experience, relationships, and understanding of the inner-workings of multilateral and/or donor communities, to shift practices over time in the development data sphere. This new position will work to elevate advocacy for gender data, with a focus on increasing tangible actions, collaboration, and investment in gender data among multilateral, donor, and policymaker communities. The position will lead Data2X’s efforts to identify the necessary changes in policy and investments to close gender data gaps – particularly those required for SDG achievement.
This position will manage a Senior Policy Officer and will report to the Executive Director.
S/he will collaborate closely with the Deputy Director of Data2X and Director of Communications, as well as Data2X’s Senior Fellow and senior advisors.
