To truly ‘empower women and thereby empower humanity’, the data must reflect the full picture. That women are counted and that women’s leadership is championed, all towards a more sustainable, equitable and peaceful world.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • As part of our efforts to enhance our Enterprise Risk Management framework, I will present to the board by May 2018 a course of action to raise awareness at all levels of the organisation and stamp out any and all sexual harassment that might occur in the organisation.

  • By the end of 2018, adopt a revised Policy on Gender Equality and Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment, to ensure that the organisation embraces a gender-responsive approach throughout its project portfolio and operations.
