Why ItCounts?

#genderequality #invisiblebias #citizen

In Europe women represent 33% of the european scientific community, in the USA about 5.12% of airline or commercial pilots are women, and in the world 86% of the business angels are men. Today we know that a lack of gender equality in sciences, business, politics, arts or medicine has big consequences for society as a whole, so it’s time for change! However the debate about representation in diverse fields between men and women often becomes heated or seems reserved to experts. More than ever we need a tool that is objective, quantitative, and easy, to talk about gender equality.

What is ItCounts ?

The main tools of the community are an app and a website that allow every user to report sex ratios in professional and personal life in less than 2 minutes, to share and analyse them to learn from data, and bring concrete solutions to observed numbers.
