Data Crítica seeks stories on gender and sexual diversity [Latin America]

Posted on Aug 14, 2023 in Data Journalism

Women, non-binary and LGBTQIA+ journalists residing in Latin America can apply for this program in Spanish.

Data Crítica, an organization that uses data to drive investigations on crucial regional issues, launches "Datos para mirar otras narrativas," an initiative aimed at telling stories that are often excluded from the media, focusing on gender and sexual diversity from an intersectional perspective.

Projects can address issues such as gender-based violence, unpaid care work, sex work, hate speech and misinformation, biases in algorithms, and more. It is not necessary to have data available at the time of applying, but it is important to plan for possible testimonial and documentary sources.

Three proposals will be chosen to receive editorial support and data assistance over a three-month period. Each selected project will be granted US$1,600 to compensate participants and cover research expenses.

Applicants must form a team of at least two people. Interdisciplinary teams are allowed.

The deadline is Aug. 31.
