The Gender Dashboard will collect, collate and analyse data to build a shared understanding of the status of all women in Aotearoa New Zealand. We are working with expert partners to illustrate key areas of inequality from an intersectional perspective.

Providing accurate information about the current status of all women will allow the New Zealand media to tell more accurate stories about gender, contributing to a cultural shift toward a gender positive culture. It will assist in developing a shared understanding of gender inequalities with the New Zealand public, and provide community and advocacy groups with information to assist with campaigns towards gender equality.

Using data from the public sector, research institutions and non-government sources, the data will be regularly updated to measure the steps taken by government and other groups to achieve gender equality. This will allow evaluation of the effectiveness of government policies.
