A LAU MEPI TLG New Comer Participates in a Data Hackathon and Enters the Grand Finals
TL Students Discovering Historical Sites
Al-Salehi and his colleague formed a team called “Equal Work” and together worked on a project that consists of developing a website that will visualize gender inequality in the workplace. The website will serve as a platform to initiate advocacy for gender equality covering three countries Lebanon, Algeria, and Yemen.
This project will be divided into several phases:
Phase 1- Data Collection: To collect data from ADP, World Bank and United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
Phase 2- Analytics: To evaluate the data collected using analytical and statistical tools to discover useful information helping the team build infographics, graphs showcasing gender inequality in the workplace at various levels: Employment, promotion, termination, etc…
Phase 3: to red-flag the loopholes inhibiting gender equality at work and proposing adequate solutions.
The ADP jury took a closer look at the project and was interested in its objective. The website is not an ordinary platform showcasing percentages; it serves as an analytic tool by comparing the work-specific gender-gap between the three countries and proposing reforms with the attempt to reduce them.
Thereupon, the “Equal Work” team was shortlisted to participate in the ADP “Visualize 2030” camp and present their final product during the Ceremony on the 14th of October 2019, where the multidisciplinary evaluation committee will assess the final output of the project.
With his strong confidence, commitment accountability and decision-making capabilities, Al Saheli have proven that a genuine Tomorrow’s Leader student can actually be today’s leader.
