Caroline Criado Perez OBE



Caroline Criado Perez OBE is a best-selling and award-winning writer, broadcaster, feminist campaigner, and speaker. Her talks focus on the data gender bias and how it affects organisations and prevents a world that is inclusive for everyone.

Caroline is the author of the #1 international best-seller, INVISIBLE WOMEN: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men (Chatto & Windus, Abrams, 2019), highlighting the systematic biases behind the data and assumptions impacting our everyday lives. It is the winner of Financial Times Book of the Year Award 2019 and the 2019 Royal Society Science Book prize. 

Caroline’s notable campaign work includes: getting a female historical figure on Bank of England banknotes, Twitter/X to introduce a “report abuse” button on tweets, and the first statue of a woman (Millicent Fawcett) erected in Parliament Square, London.

Created an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2015, Caroline has received the Liberty Human Rights Campaigner of the Year award, and Finland’s HÄN award for promoting equality. Her podcast Visible Women was chosen by The Guardian newspaper, as one of the 20 best podcasts of 2022.

From car safety to medical drugs, from public policy to AI, the world has been designed for only 50% of the population. 

Caroline’s bestselling expose of the worldwide gender data gap has sold nearly a million copies worldwide and continues to influence policy, product design and research globally. Caroline explains the findings from her book as well as her on-going research into what it takes to create a world that works for everyone. 

Data has never been more important for future-proofing an organisation. As AI becomes ever more integral to our lives, advances in this emerging technology, from ChatGPT to cutting-edge medical diagnostics, the opportunities are greater, but so are the pitfalls. Caroline’s ground breaking research has created new organisations, shaped governmental and corporate policy and inspired a generation of product designers.
