Our mission is to promote equitable and gender-sensitive data systems for better, more inclusive decision making.

Who We Are

We are a community of individuals who are passionate about leveraging data for gender equality, and for those who are keen to learn more. We advocate for equitable and gender-sensitive data practices by not only turning the tables on gender injustices, but rooting out all forms of oppression. 

 

Whether you’re a data science and technology expert, a social justice advocate, or both, DFN is the perfect place to deepen your knowledge and expand your network.

DFN is inspired by, but unaffiliated with, the book Data Feminism written by Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren F. Klein and published by the MIT press.

We amplify the voices of marginalized communities - especially those facing intersecting vulnerabilities

Our community creates a safe space for women, girls and other marginalized individuals to speak their truths and explore the obstacles they face.

In dismantling discriminatory barriers, we strive to close the data science diversity gap by encouraging minoritized people to join and remain in STEM industries.
