City Hub and Network for Gender Equity (CHANGE) Launch Event
Governor of Tokyo KOIKE Yuriko joined City of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in the City Hub and Network for Gender Equity (CHANGE) Launch Event on Monday, November 23, 2020. Tokyo and Los Angeles are two of six cities which co-founded CHANGE – the world’s first international city network dedicated to the pursuit of gender equality. At the event, leaders from each city discussed their vision and efforts to address gender equity in their cities.
Governor Koike stressed the importance of collaborating with other cities not only as a means to advance the cities but also to resolve global challenges. Since taking office in 2016 as the first female governor of Tokyo, she has been focusing on women’s empowerment. She expressed hope that while she is the first female governor of Tokyo, she “will not be the last.”
