    “Reset is not about going back to normal.
    It’s about building a better normal for everyone.”
    The pandemic’s toll has brought renewed urgency for society to address systemic barriers faced by women and marginalized people in accessing opportunities, work/life balance, equitable economic benefit, and inclusive agency to shape and steward the cities we live in.
    The Women’s Leadership Initiative has organized the Reset Symposium to cultivate a deep conversation across silos to co-create solutions for more equitable and sustainable city building, engaging diverse and multidisciplinary perspectives of planners • designers • developers • builders • investors • feminists • economists • urbanists • organizers • citizens.
