We need to close gender gaps in all spheres, not only because it's the right thing to do, but because it brings us closer to more inclusive and just societies.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Champion the Economic Empowerment of Women in processes and fora in the UN such as Commission on the Status of Women, intergovernmental negotiations on the Global Compact for Migration, and the Commission on Population and Development as a way of advancing gender equality.

  • Sponsor or participate in at least 3 activities during the year to promote women's economic empowerment.
