Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Singapore to the United Nations in New York
Burhan Gafoor

Singapore has always prioritised the development of our most valued resource - our people, both women and men - by providing them with equal opportunities to succeed in life. We are particularly committed to the advancement of women as integral and equal members of society. The establishment of the International Gender Champions network in New York is a positive step in our collective efforts to promote gender equality and women's empowerment.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Participate in events on gender issues at the United Nations and outside the United Nations

  • Organise at least one gender-related event at the Singapore Mission or the United Nations in the next 12 months
