Phil's Book Club

Why data isn't always gender neutral

Join us on 27 May for the second meeting of Phil’s Book Club, where we will discuss Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men, by Caroline Criado Perez. Register below 

This session led by IMD Professor Phil Rosenzweig revolves around “Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men,” by Caroline Criado Perez.

Invisible Women is the Winner of the 2019 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award, and Winner of the 2019 Royal Society Science Book Prize. It’s not only an eye-opening account that brings into view many examples of systematic bias, but also improves our capacity for evidence-based thinking. Our discussion is sure to bring in new examples and personal experiences.

Questions to consider

As you read Invisible Women, here are a few questions to think about:

  1. Of the many examples of gender bias provided in this book, which do you find most striking, surprising or memorable?
  2. From your personal or professional experience, what other example of gender bias can you think of? What is the source of this bias, and how serious is the effect?
  3. Thinking of your particular circumstances – personal or professional – how can you draw upon the insights of this book to take action?

Time: 11:00 and 18:00 (CEST)
