On 2 October 2017, we organized a Facebook Live discussion in partnership with iKNOW Politics which brought together a diverse panel of Geneva-based Gender Champions who shared their experiences and views on the role of male champions in promoting women’s political participation and leadership.
- Martin Chungong, Secretary General of the Inter-parliamentary Union
- Elayne Whyte Gómez, Ambassador of Costa Rica to the UN in Geneva
- Michael Møller, Director General of the UN Geneva
- Nazhat Shameem Khan, Ambassador of Fiji to the UN in Geneva
Along with iKNOW Politics and International Gender Champions’ e-Discussion convened on this topic from 6 September to 12 October 2017 , this event was part of their efforts to promote an active and fruitful online dialogue on how men can be catalysts for enhancing women’s participation in politics with the goal of drawing out best practices and lessons learned.
