We can truly progress when there is gender equality. Without it, I see no end to endemic sexual violence. Let’s shatter the status quo, reform old mindsets, and pave the way for girls and boys to live without gender-based violence.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

Personal Commitments

Foster diversity and inclusion in the selection and recruitment of new staff, as well as recruitment of at least 50% of women from the global south/conflict-affected countries.
Ensure that the Global Survivors Fund, in all its communications work, uses gender inclusive language when referring to survivors of conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV), recognising that women and men, girls and boys, can be victims. This includes a revision of our website before the end of 2021.
