FRA takes part in Politico ‘Women rule’ conference

On 21 June the Agency took part in the Politico ‘Women Rule’ conference, where findings on sexual harassment from the Agency’s Violence against Women survey were presented and discussed in the panel ‘Sexual Harassment: Questionning #MeToo’s Impact’.

The conference also held a workshop on overcoming inequalities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, where the issue of lack of women in these fields was addressed – which relates to the Agency’s paper on #Big Data: Discrimination in data-supported decision-making, as this refers to the need for more diversity in the design of algorithms to overcome the potential for discrimination.
