The equitable inclusion of women’s voices, skills, and experiences in the work of the Vienna-based organizations makes our work more effective, our outcomes more durable, and our world more just.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I commit to implement specific measures to promote a culture of work-life balance in my mission: 1) scheduling recurring internal meetings between the hours of 09:30 and 16:00; 2) addressing staffing needs; and 3) seeking feedback through surveys to measure the effectiveness of these steps.
I commit to host at least one event on the sidelines of a UN conference or during the 16 Days of Activism to spread awareness on gender-based violence.
