Heidi Schroderus-Fox

In my work here in Geneva and elsewhere, I’m committed to advancing a more just and gender-equal world. We must ensure the full, equal and meaningful participation of all women, including girls, without any discrimination. Gender equality strengthens the stability of societies and benefits us all. The realization of women’s and girls’ rights is crucial for sustainable peace and development.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Promote gender transformative approaches and follow-up in partner organizations’ normative and operational work, and integrate key messages related to women’s rights, gender and diversity; sexual and reproductive health and rights; women, peace and security; and combating sexual and gender based violence, in all relevant work of the Mission.
Encourage Geneva headquartered partner organizations to promote gender balance and work-life balance at all levels, and request regular updates on plans and resources allocated to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
