Executive Director, Kofi Annan Foundation
Kofi Annan said “Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance” . This holds true for his Foundation, and we are committed to ensuring that diversity, inclusion and gender equality are at the core of everything we do.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
Raise awareness of gender and inclusion within the organization by a) organizing at least one discussion with an expert, b) making relevant documents and resources available on the Foundation's internal platform, and c) sharing information about relevant gender-focused events being held in Geneva or online.
As we design and launch a new website for the Kofi Annan Foundation in 2023, we will ensure that it is a) accessible and inclusive and b) that it features issues of diversity, equality and inclusion, in particular, recognizing women contributing to peace, democracy and multilateralism.
