There is nothing else like Equilo

Equilo fills a global gap in comprehensive, up-to-date, action-oriented gender data and analysis tools for development practitioners and impact investors. Unlike other gender equality and social inclusion analysis "tools," which are often just PDFs that are hard to implement and use practically, Equilo's online platform provides:

Reliable data, aggregated in one place. Equilo's tools provide country- and sector-specific gender data analysis for any country in more than 50 sectors across more than 200 indicators. Pulling from from multiple databases and constantly refreshed, Equilo's tools provide data confidence scores and full source information so you know your data is coming from reliable sources.

Contextualized data to understand the "so what." Most existing databases provide data and indicators, leaving users to interpret and analyze what those numbers mean. But Equilo isn’t just a database - our tools contextualize the numbers with compelling, actionable content. Using business case, materiality, and human rights arguments, we translate the importance of the data to ensure diverse audiences understand why it matters and are compelled to action.

Analysis that leads users to take action. Equilo pairs each thematic area of analysis with a “What Works” or action planning section, presenting a number of evidence-based and promising actions for users to consider integrating in their projects or investments. Each suggested action is accompanied by tools and resources to support practical, on-the-ground implementation. No other tool comprehensively integrates bespoke analysis and action for users.
