Gender equality is a priority in Belgium's national and foreign policies and I personally see it as key for a more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. It is therefore essential to implement gender equality in our daily work in the Geneva global hub.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Put gender equality as a standing item on all agendas of staff meetings dealing with the missions activities and functioning.

  • Introduce additional family friendly policies, for example, to ensure meetings are normally not held early morning or late in afternoon/evening or have an early planning of holidays, and ensure they are respected
