Meirav Eilon Shahar

In order to achieve a more equal and fair world, a world that achieves human rights for all, we must all fight for gender equality. I am very proud to be part of the International Gender Champions Initiative and will continue promoting women’s rights and gender equality, both in International Organizations in Geneva and within my country, Israel.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Organize a workshop on Empowerment Self Defense (ESD), for diplomats in Geneva, in order to become actors of change, by actively and physically promoting the prevention of gender-based violence and working to reduce cases in our own countries.
Organize a seminar to sensitize and improve knowledge of the Mission staff on gender issues to promote gender equality within the Mission and in our work in all organizations in Geneva.
