ABOUT THE ROLE: 
CHANGE (City Hub and Network for Gender Equity) is a world-first, dedicated and progressive collective of global cities focused on achieving true gender equality in member cities. Through the leadership of the six co-founding cities – Barcelona, Freetown, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and Tokyo - CHANGE has the power to harness the commitment to gender equality already found within these cities and to make an even greater difference to the 35 million people who live within them. Mayors and local governments around the world have great power to improve the lives of those with marginalized gender identities, such as providing more equitable public safety, educational opportunities, and equal pay initiatives. The success of international city networks on climate change, migration, and economic development highlight the role that networks like CHANGE can play in modeling positive policy change.
