Gender equality and women’s empowerment are issues very close to my heart. Women and girls are the ‘human face’ of cities and we must have equal opportunities for all and enjoy good quality of life.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Establish a formal mentorship programme for women colleagues based in Kenya to guide and accelerate their career growth.

  • Establish a senior accountability mechanism to help ensure a gender responsive workplace while monitoring gender parity and mainstreaming within UN-Habitat.
