About Equal Measures 2030

EM2030 is a collaboration of national, regional, and global leaders from feminist networks, civil society, international development and the private sector. We connect data and evidence with advocacy and action on gender equality, to transform the lives of women and girls and realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It is more than 25 years since 189 countries committed to the Beijing Platform for Action by advancing women’s rights. And we have less than 10 years until the 2030 deadline for achieving the SDGs and their promise of gender equality. But Equal Measures 2030’s SDG Gender Index shows that not a single country has yet achieved gender equality.

Our Strategic Plan 2020-2025 is founded on the belief that data can expose gender inequality and injustice, motivate change, and drive accountability. From 2020 to 2025, working with women and girls and across feminist organizations and movements, Equal Measures 2030 will catalyze change through data-driven advocacy aimed at holding governments and policymakers accountable.

Rapid change towards global gender equality is possible. Join us to help make it happen.

About this role

Reporting to the Head of Data and Insights, the Gender Data & Insights Analyst will work together with colleagues across the EM2030 Secretariat team (especially communications and advocacy colleagues) and with EM2030 partners across Africa, Asia and Latin America to connect data and evidence with advocacy and action to advance gender equality.

In this role, you will draw heavily on the SDG Gender Index and related gender data to generate findings for influencing policies, raising awareness and for broadly monitoring progress towards gender equality. The SDG gender index (see: is a key tool for holding stakeholders to account for progress towards greater gender quality and meeting the rights of women and girls across 56 issues and for 144 countries.

In this role you will link, liaise, and collaborate with colleagues from across the EM2030 team and partnership. You will work closely with advocacy and communications colleagues, regional team members and partners to ensure that data products are demand-driven.

The role will suit someone who can identify, analyze and write up interesting findings from large data sets and other diverse sources and who can creatively transform data into influencing, campaigns and communications content. It is ideal for the candidate who can work independently and proactively with great attention to detail, and who values collaboration, flexibility, and nimbleness.
