Significant progress in gender equality has been achieved over the past few decades. While there is reason to celebrate how far we have come, we must still acknowledge how far we will have to go. A real breakthrough will not happen without a change in our mindsets. I am very proud to be part of this growing network and I am fully commited to actively advocate for true gender equality and the empowerment of women alongside other Gender Champions.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Ensure gender parity within the Mission, avoid gender-stereotyping in the assignment of tasks, encourage women and men to work together for gender equality, including through a more active engagement of men in gender related issues

  • To advocate for strong language on gender equality and the empowerment of women in resolutions, to promote these issues in statements and events, to raise awareness through social media
