We have two exciting ways for you to learn about Gender Analytics!

What is Gender Analytics? It’s a powerful way to uncover hidden opportunities for innovation and improved effectiveness by using a gender lens to analyze your products, services, processes, and policies.

Our courses are designed to help leaders discover how gender identity, Indigeneity, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, and other identities and their intersections shape your organization’s impact.

“Most organizations don’t appreciate the hidden ways that gender and other intersecting identities can shape outcomes. We are introducing Gender Analytics to provide executives, managers, and analysts with core competencies in uncovering risks and opportunities that can lead to innovative product, service, process, and policy design.”

Sarah Kaplan, Founding Director, GATE
