I pledge to strive for gender parity and will gladly sign the IGC Panel Parity Pledge. I agree to participate in meetings of the network to exchange experiences and strategize on how to accomplish our commitments. I also pledge to highlight the IGC network on the VCDNP' s website, and report on the results of the IGC' s work. I am committed to engaging men in the process of promoting gender equality, as well, since I could not more heartily agree about the critical importance of engaging both men and women in this initiative, for gender equality raises the quality of life for all.
Achieve an average of 50% female participation in the VCDNP biannual training courses on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, and feature female speakers in 8 of the VCDNP’s Monthly Seminar Series.
Hold two events focused on the role of women in nuclear (e.g. a salon dinner at the ambassador level and a public event).
