Relevant Policies

In 2000, the City of Los Angeles passed a local ordinance adopting the international Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) - which mandates adoptees to ensure equality for women and girls in the civil, political, economic, social, and cultural arenas. In 2015, Mayor Eric Garcetti signed into order Executive Directive 11, calling on every City Department to help Los Angeles fulfill its responsibilities under the CEDAW ordinance. As one of the first cities to adopt CEDAW, L.A. served as a model for its implementation by creating the Gender Equity Coalition — which includes a Gender Equity Liaison from every City Department — and directing the leadership of each Department to prepare a Gender Equity Action Plan, complete with quarterly plan progress reports, to measure and address disparities in the workforce.
