Equality for women is progress for all. Until women and men can stand as full equals the world over, our work is not done. Increasing the representation of women at the negotiating table, an important force in humanity’s pursuit of justice and equality, is a key aspect of women’s empowerment and, in my view, will greatly enhance the prospects of achieving these objectives. We have a collective responsibility to continuously raise gender awareness and advance gender parity. I’m delighted to join the International Gender Champion leadership network to contribute to our shared goals of breaking gender barriers.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
