December 12: Join Sangita in a webinar addressing gender-related challenges in remote mobile data collection

Written by r.i.c.e. on December 11th, 2016

r.i.c.e. has recently launched the Social Attitudes Research in India (SARI) phone survey to track social attitudes over time and experiences of discrimination on the basis of gender, caste, and religion in India.  We study discrimination and social exclusion because they play an important role in determining human development outcomes.  The Social Attitudes Research in India survey (SARI) is a tool that we hope will both raise awareness and influence policy.

The World Food Program is hosting a webinar addressing questions such as how to engage women when conducting surveys via mobile phone, biases that emerge from low female participation in surveys, and using mobile data collection methods to collect information on women’s experiences.   Join Sangita as she speaks about r.i.c.e.’s experiences in collecting data from women through mobile phones in India.

On Monday, December 12 at 9am EST/7:30pm IST, you can join the webinar here
