Thank you to everyone who participated in this prize design!

As the research team finalizes the design, the Gender Data Gap Community will close and be archived under Equity here. Your feedback has been outstanding and has gone a long way towards developing the best possible competition for closing gender data gaps in mental health.

XPRIZE is moving into fundraising for this data challenge. The full design will be shared with potential donors, sponsors and other stakeholders. A summary is available here. We look forward to launching the competition as soon as funding is secured.

Stay tuned for our monthly newsletter, by which way we will notify you of developments in XPRIZE Mental Health Gender Data Challenge and keep you updated on other prize designs and equity-related initiatives at XPRIZE.

We're currently designing three prizes:
  1. Age Reversal
  2. Circular Food Economy
  3. Frontline Health Prize Design

If you are interested in any of these projects, please feel free to contribute to their discussions.

We look forward to involving you in future equity or related projects. Please let us know in the meantime if you have any ideas, suggestions or questions about our current efforts!

    Hi @ktabb,
    I hope by designers you mean experts like yourself. Apart from XPRIZE people, anyone can apply when the challenge launches. Even experts who advised us during the prize design. Thanks.

    Thank you @stephaniel and @ukarvind for contributing in this prize design. It was great to have inputs and feedback on the discussions. These discussions were incredibly helpful in increasing our understanding into this subject and for the research direction.

    This was the first data challenge in the series of gender Initiative. We will definitely connect again when we start designing our next gender data challenge and also when this challenge launches.
