Ambassador and Permanent Representative, Embassy of Ireland to The Netherlands
Kevin Kelly

"Without gender equality half of the world’s population remains unrepresented, and we are all the poorer for it. It is the world’s responsibility to respect, encourage, and advance the role of women at work and in our societies. As Ambassador, I represent the interests of Ireland in bilateral and multilateral fora and strive to promote the gender perspective." 

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Advocate for the incorporation of the gender perspective in every aspect of Ireland's work at international organisations in The Hague, including advocacy for the inclusion of commitments on gender equality in statements and resolutions.

  • Further develop Ireland's bilateral engagement in the Netherlands in promoting the "Women in Diplomacy" agenda and hosting at least one public diplomacy event every year which focuses on an aspect of the gender equality agenda.
