I’m representing the first country to grant women the right to vote and to run for office in 1906. Hence, for me, promoting gender equality is not just another "box to tick off", but rather a part of our national DNA. Gender equality is something deeply ingrained in my everyday life, both as a Finnish diplomat at the United Nations and, also as a father of two daughters, in my private life.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
