Marc Bichler

Gender balance is an essential ingredient in designing effective, collective responses to the global challenges we are facing today.

Increased empowerment of women and equal opportunities in our organizations are prerequisites in that regard.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I will actively cooperate with all other concerned stakeholders, in particular the Permanent Missions whose governments have adopted a Feminist Foreign Policy, to fight against stereotypes and harmful gendered norms by adopting an intersectional lens and following gender inclusive guidelines in our language, communications, and conduct of meetings, notably at the Human Rights Council.
In my activities as Permanent Representative, and notably in my capacity as Vice-President on Bureau of the Human Rights Council for the year 2023, I will advocate for the promotion, protection, and fulfillment of the human rights of women and girls, including social, economic, cultural, and environmental rights.
