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

Continue working to ensure that the voice of victims and survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, including those from armed conflict, is heard in all Geneva-based agencies and organizations, while fighting double standards and discrimination.
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.
