D3 Launches Gender Research Initiative

D3’s new Gender Research Initiative is bringing together thought leaders from academia, non-profits, and research institutions to share social science contributions to the field of gender studies.

The panel discussion, “Persisting Gender Issues Around the World,” will cover access to healthcare, educational attainment, financial inclusion, and security. Join the conversation to learn more about D3’s public opinion survey data from 26 countries since 2007, with a synopsis of our recent national survey results from Bangladesh (July 2015).
