WE DON'T HAVE
GENDER EQUALITY.
LET'S CHANGE THAT.

WOMEN’S INITIATIVE EDMONTON IS A MUCH NEEDED DRIVE FOR WOMEN'S EQUALITY IN OUR CITY.

It is a chance for women and girls to be heard, for diverse perspectives to be embraced, and for a gender lens to be applied to today’s decisions that impact all of our tomorrows.

It is the rallying call for Edmontonians to make our city more open, inclusive, safe, and rich in opportunities for all.

The time is now, the place is here. The work is ours. Help us spread the word.
