Progress is hard-won, but easily lost. Backsliding on women’s rights is not an option. At a time where our work in Geneva focuses on the post-pandemic recovery we should not forget that gender equality should be at its heart.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I will continue my longstanding involvement in internal mentoring and empowerment of female staff, now also in my capacity as a Head of the Delegation of the European Union to the UN and other international organisations in Geneva.
I will actively promote priorities set up by the "EU Action Plan on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in External Action 2021–2025" within Geneva multilateral fora.
