Our motto, working together for a world free of chemical weapons, can only be realised when we engage all of the world's citizens in this challenging endeavour. The toughest problems require the best people and making use of 100% of the talent pool. We celebrate diversity in all of its forms. The OPCW is committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone as we work to rid the world of chemical weapons.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Establish work-life balance arrangements which are available to all staff in order to foster an equitable and inclusive work environment.

  • Establish and appoint Gender Focal Points in each Division of the OPCW in order to promote gender equality and ensure gender mainstreaming throughout the organisation.
