Looking at the hard-earned achievements in gender equality, it is fair to say that they are mainly the result of women's engagement. Men, individually and collectively, can and should do more to contribute their vital share in order to achieve gender equality. For me, the IGC Initiative is the perfect platform to walk the talk.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Building on the unconscious bias workshop organized last year, I commit to strengthen gender awareness among the Embassy staff, including by facilitating discussions with all staff to collect ideas for improvement.
The Embassy of Switzerland will organize an event with the aim of further enhancing the dialogue on specific issues of gender equality.
