Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Australia to the United Nations in New York
Gillian Elizabeth Bird

Australia is strongly committed to gender equality and empowering women and girls to participate fully in economic, social and political life. I warmly welcome the opportunity to join the International Gender Champions network in New York to advance these commitments.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Actively promote gender equality and women's leadership at the United Nations through social media.

  • Systematically give consideration to the inclusion of gender equality and women's empowerment issues in all statements and interventions made at the United Nations.
