Erik Brøgger Rasmussen

It is a fact that gender equality and diversity provides better outcomes – within our organizations and in terms of sustainable development on a global scale. I am fully committed to continue the strong Danish tradition of relentlessly promoting gender equality and the rights and empowerment of all women and girls in all my engagements with the UN and other partners. Further, I will push to implement the internal organizational gender action plan of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ensure an open and safe working environment as well as real equal opportunities within the Danish Permanent Mission. 

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Promote gender transformative approaches and follow-up in partner organizations’ normative and operational work, and integrate key messages related to women’s rights, gender and diversity; sexual and reproductive health and rights; women, peace and security; and combating sexual and gender based violence, in all relevant work of the Mission.
Encourage Geneva headquartered partner organizations to promote gender balance and work-life balance at all levels, and request regular updates on plans and resources allocated to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
