It is only through strong leadership and a system of accountability that there will be a foundation upon which gender balance and the empowerment of women can be built. I am personally deeply committed to the achievement of gender equality, including through increasing women in leadership positions, to close the gender parity gap and affect real change.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • I pledge to support the UN Secretary-General in his goal of achieving Gender Parity in a joint effort to recruit and retain women within the organization.

  • I Commit to upholding a zero-tolerance approach to sexual harassment, strengthening victim-centered prevention and response efforts, and fostering a safe and inclusive working environment, including by setting the tone at the top.
