Gender equality and women’s empowerment are economic and moral imperatives. The UAE will do all that we can to empower women and girls because it is our national strategy, because it is smart foreign policy, and because it is the cornerstone of a more sustainable economic model and a more stable political order.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • To show that gender parity and gender-related questions are a priority for the United Arab Emirates by organizing at least 2 gender-related events per year.

  • To systematically advocate for strong language on gender equality and women’s empowerment in statements and side events that are related to the promotion of gender equality, as well as to the advancement of women’s rights.
