This event has been cancelled

Join us for a conversation about the topics raised in the book "Invisible women: exposing data bias in a world designed for men" by Caroline Criado Perez.

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED 

The lack of data about women exposed in this book is very concerning, because it means that health innovations do not benefit everyone in society equally. we want to raise awareness of this issue, get people thinking about how data or lack of data affects their lives, and discuss ways to improve the situation.

You don't need to read the book beforehand, we will introduce the topics presented in the book before we facilitate the discussion.

FREE / No booking required.

This is a joint event of British Science Week and Data Fest Scotland 2020

Dr Dimitra Blana (Aberdeen Centre for Health Data Science, University of Aberdeen)
