Women’s rights are central to every core international instrument, but too often these international obligations remain unimplemented. Human Rights Watch is proud to join the International Gender Champions initiative, to strengthen gender representation, women’s empowerment and substantive equality throughout our work, the UN system and in countries around the world.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I also commit to undertake the following:
Encourage integration of a gender perspective in Human Rights Watch's UPR submissions
Ensure gender balance on hiring panels for Geneva advocacy staff positions
Encourage at least three other Geneva-based NGOs to join as International Gender Champions by June 2017
