“Education and training play a special role in empowering women in non-proliferation, arms control, and disarmament. It is imperative that women are provided with opportunities to grow, enhance their knowledge and skills and apply them to strengthening international peace and security.”

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments
