Addressing gender equality must not be an afterthought or an addition. It is central to ensuring a fair, just and rights based society and multilateral trading system and must therefore be central to our work, research, advocacy and policy making. As a Gender Champion I will continue to highlight the importance of gender in trade and climate change policy and in supporting equality and human rights for all.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

To be involved in two mentoring initiatives a year focused on supporting the empowerment and equality of women in the workplace.
To be an advocate and champion in Barbados and the Caribbean for the rights of women and any other disadvantaged groups, specifically as it relates to MSMEs and trade and climate issues, including providing platforms for at least 2 equality experts and activists from the Caribbean to share their perspective through Geneva trade and development platforms.
