Why Equilo

Gender equality is both a human right and a precondition for catalyzing development and lifting communities out of poverty.

Gender equality also fuels economic growth by improving outcomes and mitigating risk.


Equilo gives you the power to incorporate customized best practices for gender equality and social inclusion into your project planning, investment decisions, or implementation--all at your fingertips.  

Revolutionizing Gender Analysis

Equilo is the first tool of its kind. The web-based application provides gender equality information across 132 low- and middle-income countries. In addition to country overviews, you can include sectors such as energy, infrastructure, agriculture, and finance, with more to come.


Equilo continues to add new features and functionality, including survey capabilities, and will become more robust and intelligent with predictive modeling and supplementary qualitative analysis over the next year.

Equilo is built for gender-specialists and non-gender specialists alike. The dashboard is easy to read, and each subscription package includes access to spider charts that visually display the data in an easy to read format, and “Top Areas of Improvement”, which easily identifies areas where there are the most significant gaps, and therefore opportunity for improvement. 

Real-time data and model refreshes to ensure data is always current, dynamic, and robust over time


Save on Costs and Time

The average manual GESI analysis can take anywhere from a week to several months and can be very costly. Equilo saves significant time and money - we have already done a significant portion of this process for you. Instantly access this information and spend more time and money on decision-making and implementing your programs.  

Our pricing is competitive - in most cases 99% less than traditional manual methods - and we offer various packages that have deeper volume purchase discounts. And unlike manual methods, our subscribers get real-time data. Our model refreshes to ensure data is always current, dynamic and robust over time. The spider chart and top areas for improvement for one country might be different in three months compared to today.

There is Nothing Else Like Equilo

Equilo was built to fill an existing global and industry gap to find comprehensive GESI data analyzed in one easily accessible place. It is different from other gender analysis tools, overviews, and indices for the following reasons:

Immediate identification of gender inequality hotspots with a comprehensive at-a-glance overview specific to a country and sector. Instead of spending time weeding through dozens of data sources, pie charts, or long reports,


Equilo equips users with the ability to quickly understand complex challenges and make data-driven decisions.

Comprehensive coverage of analysis topics beyond the scope of existing gender indices and tools. Most databases and resources have a limited, specific scope to measure one dimension or theme.


In contrast, Equilo comprehensively synthesizes existing data on gender equality across 15 themes, organized by six TAAP domains. This facilitates a broader understanding of constraints and opportunities within a specific country and sector.

Data is contextualized to understand the "so what." Most existing databases provide data and indicators, leaving users to interpret and analyze what those numbers mean.


Equilo contextualizes the numbers with compelling content. Using both the business case 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 leads users to take action. Equilo pairs each thematic area of analysis with a “What Works” section, presenting a number of evidence-based and promising actions for users to consider integrating in their projects or investments if the analysis reveals particular areas of challenge.


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.


The unique Super GRL (Gender Resource Library) fuels our analysis with a set of robust, validated global databases, rigorous qualitative research, and alternative data sources that show promising or innovative practice.

Aggregating cutting-edge research in a single platform, it also offers free public access to promote learning and sharing. Practitioners are able to submit new resources for review and inclusion, ensuring that Super GRL is continually updated with fresh validated research and data.

The Super GRL is curated by the Equilo team, which screens and validates resources and uses APIs to pull in and analyze:

  • Quantitative data from over 150 quantitative global databases- open source and free to explore!

  • Qualitative data from over 15,000 reports, studies, and publications
