Julie Heckscher

Gender equality is a core Australian value, and should also be a core value of the international rules-based order we all strive for.  Both in our Indo-Pacific region and globally, we need to ensure gender equality not only because it makes for better lives, but also for a better world.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Promote gender parity and geographic diversity on speaking panels by requesting equitable gender and geographic representation in public speaking engagements.
Actively promote gender equality and the elimination of sexual and gender-based violence across international legal bodies and international organisations through participation in governance reform initiatives.
