I am delighted to join the increasing number of International Gender Champions and encourage other senior leaders to come on board and make concrete commitments.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
Special Envoy for the Ocean,
I also commit to undertake the following:
Strive to ensure that at least 26 percent of co-chairs and co-facilitators appointed to General Assembly negotiations processes during the 71st Session, are women, despite the fact that only 18 percent of Permanent Representatives to the UN are women.
Strive to achieve gender parity within my own Office, including at senior management levels.
