This report provides background for the City of Ottawa and the community as we work together to achieve results. The original motion passed unanimously by Council in March 2018, and put forward by Councillors Deans and McKenney, was motivated by the realization that women in the political and public life of the City have been under-represented and under-valued. It also recognized that women and men experience cities differently, and that this needs to be taken into account in the development and delivery of the City’s policies, procedures, and services.
