About the event
Acknowledging the ongoing global shift towards smart cities, it is imperative to recognize that inclusivity should be a fundamental aspect of these urban developments. While success stories like Zurich exist, a substantial gap remains in creating truly gender-inclusive cities. This roundtable builds on the momentum generated during our 8th Annual Global Conference on Nov 24th, 2023, seeking to delve deeper into the innovative ideas that emerged during the conference discussions.
The primary objective of this round table is to identify actionable issues hindering women's equal access to education, work, and well-being in urban spaces. Leveraging insights from a survey conducted by TalentNomics India and KAS, the discussion aims to pinpoint major roadblocks and propose tangible solutions.
The round table will center its discussions on the following key areas:
- Inclusive Urban Transportation and Mobility: Ensuring equal access to education, work, and well-being for all women. Tailoring solutions for economically sound and economically underprivileged women.
- Safe Spaces for Recreation/Exercise: Examining the safety of streets, shopping centers, parks, and gyms for women.
- High-Quality Facilities: Addressing the need for public bathrooms, creche/elder care facilities, safe shelters, lighting, accommodations and access to emergency services.
For each identified focus area, discussions will explore the roles of government agencies, the private sector, and civil society. Emphasizing collaboration, the round table will chart a course forward for urban planners, policymakers, enlightened private sector leaders, and citizens to pilot gender-inclusive cities in South Asia.
This Round Table represents a pivotal opportunity to bridge the gap between rhetoric and action in building gender-inclusive urban spaces. By bringing together diverse perspectives and experiences, we aim to foster collaborative initiatives that will contribute to the creation of cities where every woman can lead a productive and fulfilling life. Join us in this exploration of possibilities towards creating the Equiverse.
