I’m proud to be an International Gender Champion and to support the initiative. I hope that sharing the experience of my country Bulgaria will be an added value to the gender equality debate. I firmly believe that a gender-balanced society would be one where the word ‘gender’ does not exist anymore.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Advocate as a Member State to institutionalize gender balance on panels and among participants.

  • Include a gender perspective in the country-specific recommendations from Bulgaria during the Universal Periodic Review process and ensure that there is greater representation of women experts and leaders from Bulgaria across all areas.
