Anna Brandt

We need strengthened efforts to promote gender equality, to protect the gains we already have and to advance gender equality further to fill the remaining gaps, in order to reach the SDGs and realize Agenda 2030. We need to focus on rights, representation and resources, in order to achieve results.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • I will initiate a dialogue with OECD and UNESCO on whether the statistical work of the organizations is sufficiently gender disaggregated and, if needed, how more gender disaggregated data can be compiled.

  • a) I will continue to push for gender equality at senior management levels in OECD and UNESCO b) I will continue to demand gender integration in programs, policies and normative and operative work in OECD and UNESCO c) I will encourage OECD and UNESCO to put in place comprehensive and transparent policies to prevent and address sexual abuse and exploitation.
