About Us

We believe early, action-oriented gender equality and social inclusion analysis is vital to deepening impact and increasing gender equality.

Equilo is the brainchild of a gender specialist who spent years working in the field and realized how many decision makers would benefit from having GESI analyses that were quicker, higher quality, and more impactful than the traditional manual method, which often took several weeks to get started and several weeks to finalize.


Equilo was born out of these experiences. Helping you create change and overcome obstacles, we add value at every step by replacing old-fashioned research and project management with powerful online gender analysis tools to enable clearer, faster equality insights that translate into action. Equilo brings decades of expertise at the intersection of gender analysis and social impact with big data, smart tech, and AI to support development, humanitarian, impact investing, and private sector decision makers with smarter, faster, and more effective approaches to increasing impact.


The result: Inclusive communities. Better business and financial performance. Positive outcomes.
