Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Switzerland to International Organizations in Vienna
Claude Wild

I pledge to continue getting actively engaged in the promotion of gender equality in the daily work of the Permanent Mission of Switzerland as well as in the broader context of the United Nations and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), especially when it comes to the participation of men in debates and events on gender related issues.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Enhance the representation of women in professional/senior positions at the Permanent Mission of Switzerland by 10 percent points in 2018.

  • Support actively the upgrade/creation of the position of 'Director on Gender Issues' at the OSCE, currently a position of 'Senior Adviser on Gender Issues' under the Secretary General.
