Diverse perspectives lead to more innovation and more sustainable decisions. This is both in the workplace and more broadly in areas of armed conflict and violence, where women and girls often have distinct experiences and different contributions, too often underestimated and hidden behind their assumed vulnerabilities. We need their voices at the table. I take it upon myself to help ensure they are part of every conversation, including those here at the United Nations.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
