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.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • 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.
