Ambassador and Permanent Representative, Embassy of New Zealand
Lyndal Walker

“New Zealand is among the top ten nations in the world when it comes to gender equality.  We want all New Zealanders to have the freedom to determine their own future – free of gender stereotypes and constraints.  It should be nothing out of the ordinary for anyone to be anything they want.”

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Surrounding New Zealand’s Suffrage 125 celebration the Embassy will host one panel event to discuss strategic leadership, perspectives on advancement and the opportunities and challenges still before us in New Zealand.

  • Within my Embassy create and support flexible working hours to balance our professional and personal lives. To share our work/life practice with our Ministry colleagues after a six month implementation period.
