Dr. Thomas Greminger

The global challenges we face demand international cooperation and creativity stemming from our diversity to build resilient societies and sustainable peace and security for all.  When women are missing from decision-making and their rights are neglected or abused, we as leaders need to question the systems and structures which have contributed to exclusion, discrimination and harm, and work to develop a more inclusive and responsive global governance system. We recognise that this starts with our mindsets and extends to a critical evaluation of all our policies and programmes, behaviours and practices.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
