This episode was recorded on 20 March 2024 and therefore does not reflect any events after this date.

In this week’s episode, Mary Spencer, Jacob Shah and Laasya Shekaran all get together to discuss Caroline Criado-Perez’s Invisible Women. This is episode is also special, as it’s Mary’s last episode before she embarks on her maternity leave!

Before this discussion, we also speak to David Archer, Client Director at ZEDRA Governance, for our ‘Views from the Boardroom’ feature. With David, we talk about the key topics that have been coming up in meetings and the importance of investors taking a long-term view.

Mary, Jacob and Laasya then discuss:

  • The gender data gap: what it is, how it happens and why it matters!
  • Examples Perez uses to bring the gender data gap to life:
    • Drug trials and medical diagnoses that miss women out
    • Living arrangements that do not cater for caring work
    • Preferences for people to play as a frog rather than a woman in video games!
  • Unpaid work and the role this plays in contributing to GDP
  • The importance of women being represented in decision making
