The International Gender Champions – Geneva provides an innovative platform for showing how very practical actions can have a direct impact on working conditions and perceptions. We need personal commitments to close gaps where they exist, to counter bias and to give everybody equal opportunities at all levels. It is a privilege to be part of the network and to help move forward the same opportunities for all.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

Personal Commitments

Establish a focus group comprised of hiring managers within the technical fields to study potential obstacles and solutions to improving gender diversity.
Initiate a CERN-wide aspirational gender target to increase the percentage of females employed by CERN in science and technology over the next 5 years.
