"Mind the gap" is a Canvas JS data-viz for UNESCO developed in collaboration with the company of Valerie Alloix (Elimak) and the Institute for Statistics (UNSECO Montreal).

"To mark International Women’s Day, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics released an interactive tool to highlight the progress and pitfalls in girls’ and women’s education.

The project can be seen on the UNESCO website - It is available in 3 languages: English, French and Spanish.
