Covering a wide range of topics related to gender equality; from governance and leadership to public space and mobility, Metropolis is an organisation committed to equality between women and men.

Metropolis strives to build thriving, equitable metropolises where everyone has the opportunity to succeed. Through its initiatives and projects, Metropolis aims to reduce poverty and inequality, support care and caregiving, and create a more equitable distribution of economic opportunity. Metropolis also prioritises gender equality and aims to mainstream gender perspectives across public policies. It promotes women's leadership in metropolitan governance and develops tools to measure gender equality.
