Henrietta Fore

The largest generation of adolescent girls are preparing to become tomorrow’s inventors, leaders and workforce. We must work with a range of partners including youth to co-design innovative solutions to get every young woman and man in school, training or employment by 2030.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • UNICEF aims to be a more gender-responsive workplace, supporting all staff to take advantage of family-friendly policies such as maternity and paternity leave and flextime. UNICEF will use an annual staff survey and other data to assess levels of satisfaction and concern among male and female staff, incorporating findings into responsive action by management.

  • Through UNICEF’s GenderPro Initiative, train and recognize applied gender programming expertise across the globe. By 2021, 80% of UNICEF gender specialists and gender focal points will have completed GenderPro learning programmes.
