When you invest in the health, rights and wellbeing of girls and women there is a ripple effect that goes way beyond the individual. When you invest in girls and women, everybody wins.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Commit to speaking out boldly and continually for girls, women, and gender equality, including placing sexual and reproductive health as its bedrock. This will happen in 10 keynote speeches and 10 interviews, as well as in 7 advisory roles to the 2018 G7, corporations, and governments.

  • Commit to amplifying the voice of young people as advocates for gender equality, including their sexual and reproductive health and rights, by providing training to 300 outstanding Women Young Leaders and connecting them and Young Leader alumni to 100 opportunities to public speaking and 50 opportunities to influence decision-makers to improve policies, programs, and investments in girls and women’s health, rights, and wellbeing.
