Gender equality is imperative to the success of all humankind. We must work hard to ensure our society is not overlooking the best ideas for action and the best leaders and implementers simply because of their gender.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I also commit to undertake the following:
Ensure that panels arranged by the Office of the Permanent Observer will be gender equal, and further, that I will track and report on the gender composition of all panels we organise in 2017.
Mainstream a gender perspective in every speech/presentation I make.
Dedicate time each month to mentor and empower young women in advancing their career aspirations.
