"Everyone stands to gain as the gender equality agenda is driven forward. Let us all champion this cause together." 

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • To encourage gender balance in the composition of multi-member delegations representing the Government of the Republic of Cyprus at various international meetings and fora in Geneva. To promote gender balance and combat gender stereotyping in the recruitment of local staff and interns, as well as in the allocation of tasks and responsibilities in the Mission, by ensuring that all relevant decisions are based on the individuals’ skills and competencies.

  • To continue supporting all initiatives in the Human Rights Council that aim at strengthening gender equality, provided that their language is sufficiently ambitious.
