Melinda Gates: Data Is Sexist And Biased

2019-02-12 11:20:44

On Tuesday Bill and Melinda Gates published the Gates' 2019 annual letter. Their yearly letter brings attention to things that cheer, worry and surprise them. According to Business Insider, one of the facts that surprised Melinda Gates the most is that she says, data is sexist. They said, it can also be biased. It might even be racist. This could be because, oftentimes, people doing the data collection are not totally objective. Business Insider asked Gates, "Does this mean that female researchers or people of color are less likely to create sexist or racist data?" She responded by saying, "We don't know, because we haven't had men and women equal in those positions for a long enough time." She believes that more diversity could help, long term. She adds, "I know when you have diverse viewpoints at the table — women, people of color — the questions change."
