There is an old saying: The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  In many ways, this initiative is a first step in uniting and challenging leaders in Geneva to capitalize on the unique multilateral platforms in Geneva to promote gender equality in concrete and impactful ways around the world. My team and I look forward to working with the International Gender Champions on this important journey.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Strive to find opportunities to impart relevant and practical knowledge/experience to women that are helpful to their professional development and share best practices on the promotion, support and protection of rights of women and girls.

  • Strive to organise staff meetings or public events during working hours where possible.
