Gender equality is in our hands. We have the ability to act now to make a more equal world. Nothing changes if we don’t become the change ourselves.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Finalise a mapping exercise of Ireland’s gender equality-related work at the OECD and UNESCO, in order to ensure that the mission’s engagement at these organisations applies a gender lens in a horizontal and intersectional manner.
Organise at least two events a year that specifically advocate for gender equality-related policy goals, while enhancing awareness for these policy issues and engaging new communities of interest.
