Fearless Cities: "Are Cities Designed for Women Too?" Workshop
The project is a collaboration between the Leading Social Justice Collective (LSJC), the School of Cities at the University of Toronto, and the United Way. It seeks to enhance the safety and inclusivity of public spaces for visibly Muslim women and other women of color in the GTA.
The Fearless Cities Team is thrilled to extend an invitation to an engaging and transformative event: “Are Cities Designed for Women Too?” This thought-provoking workshop is organized by Kawther Elkholy, Noheir Elgendy, and Eman Sabour in collaboration with esteemed partners – Women for Justice Foundation (WJF), Al-Qazzaz Foundation for Education and Development (QED), and the School of Cities at the University of Toronto.
They’ll delve into the significant impact of urban planning on women’s lives. Many women worldwide feel unsafe or unwelcome in public spaces, limiting their opportunities for education, employment, and community engagement. This workshop aims to unravel these challenges and uncover innovative ways to reshape our cities for inclusivity and safety.
Format: Prepare for a dynamic workshop blending LEGO Serious Play and insightful discussions, encouraging all participants to contribute their ideas and experiences. Come with enthusiasm for exploration and readiness to brainstorm creative solutions.
Indulge in complimentary coffee, refreshments, and a delicious lunch spread while networking and exchanging ideas with fellow attendees.
Please RSVP at your earliest convenience to secure your spot.
