Dr. Robin Geiss

In my first month as the Director of UNIDIR, I am honored and delighted to become an International Gender Champion. We must go beyond “gender” as a buzzword and effectively ensure that gender equality considerations are at the core of all we do at the Institute. At UNIDIR, we will use gender as a lens that amplifies the effectiveness of our mission, working towards a more sustainable and peaceful world.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

UNIDIR will advance its work on intersectionality with the support of an internal focal point for Youth, Peace and Security.
UNIDIR will launch a new initiative to build capacity and support women’s meaningful participation in discussions related to military AI.
