One area where I will not waver is our common goal to strive for gender parity and diversity at all levels across the IFRC Secretariat and inspire National Societies to do the same.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Create an enabling environment for diverse composition of human resources in all levels of IFRC staff. This includes undertaking a comprehensive gender & diversity audit and equal pay review of the IFRC secretariat as well as ensuring all recruitment processes foster gender balance and diversity, with the aim of reaching full parity by 2028.
Ensure that all staff and volunteers have core knowledge of protection, gender, and inclusion and all IFRC supported Emergency Operations will apply the Standard Operating procedures for Safeguarding.
