Women Transforming Cities is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating stronger, more diverse and equitable cities, where women and girls have real social, economic and political power.

Join us in creating inclusive policies, equitable representation and community engagement that transforms cities into places that work for all women and girls.

This October 2016 we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a roadmap to remove barriers that silence girls' and women's voices in cities around the world.

Women Transforming Cities is sending delegates to the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) in Quito, Ecuador. We’re promoting the empowerment of women through the New Urban Agenda ( https://www.habitat3.org/the-new-urban-agenda ) among the international community there.

And we need your help to make that progress.

We’ve learned a lot, and you can help ensure that knowledge gets shared. Our work through recent decades has discovered much common ground among many unique perspectives and priorities. We have consulted with politicians, community leaders, academics, urbanists and more; we have collected and analyzed data, recommendations, and priorities for creating healthier, safer, more equitable cities for all. We have been part of the UN Habitat 3 preparatory meetings in Prague and have hosted Urban Thinkers Cafes in Vancouver to help refine our appraoch. Our Urban Solution “Advancing Equity and Inclusion -- a Guide for Municipalities” was the only Canadian solution chosen by the World Urban Campaign. Please see our work at  www.womentransformingcities.org &  https://www.facebook.com/WomenTransformingCities/videos/1245708655446942/

Now we are ready to take this knowledge to the heads of state, government ministers and high representatives who will gather in Quito along with participants fom sub-national and local governments, parliamentarians, civil society, indigenous peoples and local communities, the private sector, professionals and practitioners, the scientific and academic communities, and other relevant stakeholders.

This is a great chance to lift new ideas into view and bring women’s voices into the key decisions now being made about the future of the world’s cities.

We need you NOW to support that input.  PLEASE CONTRIBUTE, together we'all be rewarded by the outcomes of our investments.
