Education is the key to a self-determined and successful life. Therefore, we should all step up for universal access to higher education, so that both women and men are able to exploit their full potential and contribute to a thriving community.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I commit to supporting Vienna-based international organisations in their efforts to promote gender equality. I will achieve this, on the one hand, by supporting the organisations in their endeavours to reach gender equality in their respective fields of work, for example through supporting initiatives like the IAEA’s Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship Programme. On the other hand, I will aim to contribute to gender parity within the organisations’ own internal structures through advocating and promoting suitable female candidates.
I commit to promoting higher education for girls and women in underprivileged/all regions of the world. Both in formal speeches and informal meetings, I will raise the topic and stand up for enhanced educational possibilities for girls and women.
