It is my great pleasure to submit formally my commitments on concrete, measurable actions to advance gender equality. I have personally taken the IGC Panel Parity Pledge, and will ask the members of my senior management team to commit to this as well. Thank you once again for having launched and nurtured this very important initiative. It will no doubt have a significant impact on the role of international Geneva in advancing the goal of gender equality.
I commit to undertake the following:
Launch an internal campaign to raise awareness on sexual harassment at Headquarters and in field offices.
Center my report to the International Labour Conference in 2018 on Women at Work focusing on actions required for transformative gender equality in the world of work.
