CSN Gender Data Flex Presentation & Webinar 

Throughout the session, we delve into the intricacies of inclusive standards development and the pivotal role of data in achieving this. 

In understanding the significance of standards, we explore their essential role in providing a framework for consistency, quality, safety, and innovation across various domains, contributing to individual well-being, industry efficiency, and the global economy. 

Distinguishing between different types of standards, we learn about the flexibility and rapid, iterative nature of Flex, especially suitable for industries experiencing swift changes. This adaptability is crucial, particularly in the context of today's dynamic technological landscape. 

The session underscores the critical role of data in inclusion (i.e. helping us change society to more fairly accommodate everyone). Whether quantitative or qualitative, data offers robust insights for evidence-based decision-making, empowers lesser-heard groups, and provides a truly holistic understanding of communities. 

Our exploration of data extends into its role in industries and society, emphasising its critical importance in technological and societal developments. The awareness of data bias, both social and technical, is highlighted, acknowledging that all data has context, and understanding biases is crucial for minimising negative impact. 

The Flex 236 v2, our main focus, is a tool for a broad range of stakeholders involved in standards development. Its alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals, particularly gender equality and reduced inequalities, emphasises the importance of inclusive data in development.  

The scope of Flex 236 v2 covers various aspects of standards development, from selecting and assessing data to understanding and mitigating biases. It provides a comprehensive guide for making standards more inclusive and reflective of diverse communities. 

Navigating through legal protections and data regulations, we consider examples from the UK, including the Equality Act and GDPR. Understanding such regulations is vital for standards makers operating globally. 

The session outlines the steps in standards development, emphasising the importance of inclusive data in identifying needs, selecting and analysing data, and maintaining inclusivity throughout the process. 

Types of data used in standards development are explored, ranging from provided and observed to synthetic and secondary data, each playing a unique role in informing standards. 

Assessing and documenting data inclusivity, along with impact assessments and mitigating negative consequences, are crucial aspects covered, stressing the responsibility of standards makers in ensuring ethical and inclusive practices. 

Lastly, the session covers data governance and quality management, underscoring the need for transparency, accountability, and continuous improvement in the standards development process. 

In conclusion, the session provides a holistic understanding of inclusive standards development, with Flex 236 v2 serving as a valuable guide for navigating the complex landscape of data and standards. We hope you find these insights useful in your work.
