Alessandro Cortese

I am pleased to join and contribute to the International Gender Champions Initiative. Achieving gender equality and women empowerment in all spheres of our society should be our common objective. And all together we must ensure that commitments are followed by action.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Ensure gender balance within the selection panels for new positions in the Permanent Mission.

  • Advocate for positive language on gender equality and women empowerment in resolutions, statements, and side events in the works of the Vienna-based Organizations.
