Mariangela Zappia

I am a convinced advocate of the necessity to reach gender parity at the decision-making and management levels. We need proactive policies to achieve this goal, and make women empowerment a priority

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • I pledge to systematically give consideration to the inclusion of gender equality and women`s empowerment issues in all statements and interventions made at the United Nations.

  • I commit to recruiting at least one other Gender Champions from an under-represented regional group to join the International Gender Champions New York
