The Global Count Next Steps
Before looking to the future of the Global Count and what’s next, it’s important to reflect on the expertise of those who brought this unique and challenging project to light. A variety of communications, advocacy and data specialists gave their time to the Global Count with a shared passion to hear from the voices of women and gender-diverse people globally. We would like to thank the board of Women’s March Global, Global Office Consulting, Sarah Dickins, SurveyMonkey, our partners at Facebook, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Munroe Bergdorf, Uma Mishra-Newbery, V (formerly Eve Ensler), Sanctuary Studios, and Activism.Media.
This project is an important step forward in closing the gender gap and provides key learnings of how to conduct a study of this size and breadth. As we look to next year and the possibilities of running the survey again, we continue to foster new partnerships and discuss opportunities for collaboration, particularly with invested companies who are trying to use their products for good.
The use of data and its importance will only continue to grow therefore cementing the need for an annual Global Count that is integrated into mechanisms for gender equality.
