Mayor's Office of Engagement for Women

Improving opportunities for civic engagement and economic success in the lives of women, girls, and those who identify as female.

Mayor’s Office of Engagement for Women

What we do

The Office of Engagement for Women (OEW) promotes economic, educational, and social opportunities for Philadelphia’s women, girls, and individuals who identify as female. We support public policy and advocacy initiatives relating to:

  • Leadership development.
  • Education.
  • Health and wellness.
  • Civic engagement.
  • Gender equality.
  • Social justice.

As part of our work, we support the efforts of the Philadelphia Commission for Women. OEW is part of the larger Office of Public Engagement.

Learn about the Philadelphia Wage Equity Ordinance, a law that makes it illegal for employers, employment agencies, or their agents to ask an individual about their current or prior salary history during the application or hiring process. The ordinance is enforced by the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations (PCHR), and only applies when an employer is interviewing a prospective employee for a position located in Philadelphia.
