Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.

Mikser Festival champions the power of gender equity in shaping thriving, inclusive cities. We celebrate the inspiring women professionals, scientists, and cultural leaders who are reimagining our urban landscapes with equity at their core. But building equitable cities requires everyone’s voice. We empower young people, often excluded from decision-making tables, to join the conversation. Through discussion, exhibitions, workshops and other engaging events, we’ll explore innovative solutions and empower the changemakers who will build a future where everyone thrives in our communities.
