The City of Edmonton and UN Women co-hosted the second Global Meeting of Mayors on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment on October 16, 2018

"I want my daughter to grow up having seen the positive change that has come to our city as a result of this work. I’m proud Edmonton is host to world leaders and experts in a conversation that will hold us accountable and create significant, meaningful change for the safety of women and girls in our city."

- Mayor Don Iveson  

Mayors were invited to state their commitments to lead and support on-the-ground change for the empowerment of women and girls. They increased and renewed commitments to implement the Sustainable Development Goals with links to the Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces flagship initiatives they lead, and encouraged new commitments which serve to eliminate gender inequality and discrimination against women and girls.
