I am happy to be an International Gender Champion. I encourage other senior leaders to be part of this campaign for equality. I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge. António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations I also commit to undertake the following: That the system reaches gender parity at the most senior levels (USG/ASG) for posts in which I have direct authority by the end of 2021, and across the system well before 2030. Ensure that where possible on all country visits I meet with women's civil society organisations and/ or visit a programme focused on furthering gender equality and women's empowerment.
