Published on Feb 19, 2015
Digital technologies are ubiquitous, but the people who build them are hardly representative. In fact, the programmers and designers creating the tools we use—tools that are increasingly being used to make policy decisions at the highest level of government—are rarely from the populations who need them most. Women and people of color represent fewer than 30 percent of STEM professionals—a number that has declined since 1990. There’s clearly a failure in the system.

Their stories are all defined by male domination. But even in the harshest existence, our subjects find beauty in the simplest of things. Published on Feb 12, 2015

Girls with little or no education are far more likely to be married as children, suffer domestic violence, live in poverty, and lack a say over household spending or their own health care than better-educated peers, which harms them, their children, and communities, a new report by the World Bank Group finds. Jeni Klugman is the Director of Gender and Development at the World Bank Group. In her current role, she acts as lead spokesperson for gender equality issues, and is responsible for promoting the institution’s gender and development priorities following the release of the 2012 World Development Report on Gender Equality and Development.
