Gender Equality Toolkit

Promoting gender equality and the social and economic empowerment of women and girls is essential and yields benefits for everyone. All cities should strive to consider gender equity in every city policy, program, or initiative.

The Gender Equity Toolkit from the City Hub and Network for Gender Equity (CHANGE) provides cities worldwide with a guide to help advance gender equity. It offers a menu of best practices within four categories delineated by the major functions of local government.
