I believe that gender equality is central to achieving long-term change'. At Plan International, we have a vision of a world that values girls, promotes their rights and ends injustice. In line with this strong commitment, we at the Plan International United Nations Office in Geneva are conducting advocacy activities aimed at ensuring that girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive. We are committed to making gender equality a reality not only in our external influencing work and programming but also in our internal ways of working. Being part of the International Gender Champions Network represents an additional opportunity for our Office to contribute to this important issue and truly 'walk the talk'.
By December 2018, Plan International UN Office in Geneva will have delivered two workshops for diplomats, UN and civil society representatives on how to further advance girls’ rights.
By September 2018, the job descriptions and annual objectives of all staff members of Plan International UN Office in Geneva will be revised and include concrete language reflecting Plan International’s commitment to gender equality and the advancement of girls’ rights.
