Gender equality is crucial for a peaceful, just and prosperous world. Although we have made much progress throughout the years, even more still has to be done. This is the responsibility we all share. I am honoured to be an International Gender Champion. I am committed to achieving gender parity at all levels and integrating the gender perspective into the work of the IRMCT.
Break down gender barriers in appointment and selection of staff and aim at reaching parity at each level within the organisation being guided by UN Administrative Instruction ST/AI/2020/5 "Temporary Special Measures for the Achievement of Gender Parity.
Cultivate a positive and supportive organizational culture among all staff, through: ensuring staff at all levels complete mandatory UN courses on gender and harassment, including sexual harassment in the workplace; and working closely with the Gender Focal Points in my organisation to promote greater awareness of gender issues and a gender-sensitive work environment, through campaigns, in-house activities and information sessions for staff.
