CAWI (City for All Women Initiative) is a unique collaborative of women from diverse communities, organizations, and academia working with municipal decision makers to create a more inclusive city and promote gender equality.
Women in the CAWI network develop their knowledge of how the city works while putting into practice skills such as facilitation, presentation, and communications.  In turn, participants turn to their own unique communities to share what they have learned and engage others.
