Champion
Leigh Turner
Ambassador, Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom to the United Nations in Vienna
Leigh Turner

I am motivated to become an International Gender Champion to challenge gender inequality and promote efforts to allow women and men to maximise their potential. Such efforts will contribute towards a society which is not only fairer but works better for everyone.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Promote a strong focus on gender equality within my Mission, within UK delegations, in our national statements, in our engagement in all of the Vienna based Organisations and in my communications.

  • My Permanent Mission will advise and encourage UK national authorities to create a framework which encourages more women to put themselves forward for positions in the International Organisations in Vienna.
