Data2X is a collaborative technical and advocacy platform dedicated to improving the quality, availability, and use of gender data in order to make a practical difference in the lives of women and girls worldwide. Motivated by the belief that “there is no gender equality without data equality,” Data2X works with United Nations 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 in support of gender equality.

Through a combination of technical partnerships and strategic policy advocacy, Data2X works to promote filling data gaps in five development domains: health, education, economic opportunity, political participation, and human security.

Data2X is housed at the UN Foundation, with support from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. To learn more, please visit
