Gender equity will be attained when it will become a mindset rather than obligation or a policy priority. International Gender Champion initiative aims to achieve it.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Promote gender parity/equality in all public statements that we make in appropriate forums (HRC, UNHCR, UN ECE, WIPO).

  • Zero tolerance to any form of sexual harrasment or questionable behaviour.
