What People are Saying About Equilo
"The lack of current, reliable and gender-disaggregated data has been frequently cited among the top challenges for practitioners, policymakers and academia alike. For emerging markets investors like DEG, gender-disaggregated data is key for evidence-based decision-making.
I’m excited about the innovative AI-driven solution Equilo has developed to hack gender equality. I’m confident this comprehensive and interactive tool will enable our DEG team to identify gender-lens risks and opportunities along the investment cycle even better – on the go and in real-time."

Global Gender Finance Lead at DEG Invest & 2X Challenge Chair
"The consolidation of data sources, and the clear, country-by-country data sheets, graphs, and domain analysis, means that any member of a project team - a gender expert or someone with little technical or practical experience in the sector - can gain an informed understanding of the situation for women and girls and persons from marginalized backgrounds, in their project's focus country.
Apps like Equilo can not only transform our development planning but guide us in development program implementation too by widening our field of view to better understand the world and the people we are working to support."

“Equilo is user friendly and very well structured. I had a deadline clock ticking before my final proposal submission!
Access to the Equilo platform helped me a lot; I was able to easily structure my presentation by pulling up very useful gender equality statistics on energy access and quality. The statistics under the different themes were exactly the information I needed to get across my ideas, especially in terms of actions needed. I particularly appreciated the comprehensive data on gender equality comparable by country, region, income group, broken down by the energy sector.
I was able to submit my proposal on time, and I was thrilled that my proposal had not only insights on gender equality, but also more details on what needs to be done to harness gender equality opportunities in the Energy Renewable sector. Thank you so very much for introducing me to the Equilo platform."
