“Gender inequality and sex discrimination profoundly impact lives across the globe. International (human rights) law can play a role in promoting and protecting gender equality in professional environments and beyond. It is important to bring a gender perspective in the conversation on international (human rights) law, as a way of advancing social justice and equality for all.”

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • We will track and report on the gender composition of panels at events hosted at our Institute, to ensure that they are gender-balanced. In our Annual Report, we will report on the progress made in gender equality in both our staff and panel composition.

  • Twice a year, we will increase awareness on the importance of the gender balance of academic panels, by a reminder in our Internal Newsletter. Our Communications Department will oversee an equal gender/diversity representation in our photography strategy.
