The event will explore how additional data might help to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide. will stream this invitation-only event live from approximately 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. ET.

Gallup recently published a series of articles revealing the significant gender gaps women face in employment,perceived safety, and physical wellbeing worldwide. We also revealed the remarkable similarity with which women and men worldwide tend to rate their lives, as well as the many nations where very few women are "thriving."
