Gender parity is the cornerstone for peace, development and human rights. A world with more dignity depends on the work we do around these three pillars and on our commitment to leave no one behind. If we are truly committed to build a better world, empowering women and girls, providing them with universal access to Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, fulfilling every young’s person potential, focusing on adolescents girls, is not just one of the many things we could do, but it is the right investment to do.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
UNFPA Geneva Office
I also commit to undertake the following:
Actively promote work-family balance in the office by providing early information on the workload for each staff member and avoid calling meetings early in the morning or late in the evening, weekends and public holidays.
Make available training courses and knowledge materials on gender parity, gender impact and other human rights issues related to parity.
Securing that all events and initiatives organised by UNFPA in Geneva are aligned with the Panel Parity Pledge.
