I am proud to be an International Gender Champion. Empowering women and girls remains a key priority for the UK Government and Geneva is a key place to do so both within the institutions that are based here and in the work they do. There is great potential for change at this world hub for human rights, trade and humanitarian work, and if we can better harness the collective power of the UN and member states, we will be a powerful force. I hope we can use this strength to also harness the untapped potential of so many women and girls, whose contribution to solving today’s global challenges is vital.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

Ambassador, Permanent Mission of the United Kingdom to the United Nations in Geneva
