2021 Annual Assembly: Cities So Equitable
A three-part event envisioning the future of cities!
Cities So Equitable celebrates UN Women’s Equiterra - the first “country” that has achieved gender equality.
Join us to engage with experts, leaders, and community voices driving substantive change to make gender equality a reality. You will walk away with specific action steps to create an intersectional and gender-responsive Los Angeles for all!
To date, no country in the world has achieved gender equality.
Let’s come together to innovate an equitable future!
Presented by UN Women USA Los Angeles Chapter in celebration of its 2021 Annual Assembly.
Cities So Happy (May 20, 2021)
The city of the future considers the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of all people in the design of policies, programs, and services. Join us to learn from experts discussing how they identify, assess, and respond to the needs and opportunities of the community.
Community activists, advocates, and experts from the public, health, and non-profit sectors will share their perspective, best practices, and tools to create healthier and happier cities.
Cities So Shared (June 17, 2021)
The city of the future offers sustainable spaces and modes of transportation fitting its diverse communities, including women’s unique travel needs and patterns. Join us to learn about the intersection of urban planning, mobility, climate change, and gender equality.
Leaders and experts from the technology, mobility, design, construction, and public sectors will share their insight and leading conversations and activities with the goal to innovate our future shared spaces and how we travel them.
Cities So Forward (August 19, 2021)
The city of the future runs on a Caring Economy whereby women and men have equal opportunities to participate in the workforce, and livable wages are enjoyed by all. In this economy, childcare and eldercare are recognized as critical parts of the city’s infrastructure.
Leaders, experts, and activists from the business, public, and nonprofit sectors will join us to workshop this city and discuss best practices to enable gender-based budgeting and address the structural barriers preventing women and girls from accessing critical programs and services.
We believe in taking an intersectional feminist approach to envision a future city that is just, equitable, and accessible for women and girls. We'd love to hear from as many diverse perspectives and communities as we can, and we'd love to know:
