The pursuit of gender equality is, without a doubt, an objective that requires our collective commitment. The International Gender Champions Initiative reflects well on the imperative to translate a word into action in this regard. I firmly believe that all of our action-oriented commitments made under the initiative stand as valuable steps towards realising the goal of gender parity in Geneva and beyond. The Republic of Korea will redouble its efforts to realise gender equality in all areas.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Strive to promote the International Gender Champions Initiative by active communications with hubs in other regions and relevant agencies in Capital.

  • Create work environment in which staff members of the Mission can manage work and familly life in a balanced way.
