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.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • My Permanent Mission will advise and encourage the UK national authorities and the UK nuclear industry to create a framework which encourages more women to put themselves forward as candidates for positions in the IAEA.

  • 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.
