When it comes to gender equality, we all have a role to play.  Confronting bias in our own actions.  Making sure that we conceive and implement progammes that promote empowerment of both women and men.  In contributing to a working environment where all can contribute equally and fully.  But as decision-makers we have a special responsibility to show the way and to create conditions where these individual and daily actions can be taken.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Organize a follow up survey on staff perceptions about gender equality at UN Geneva to assess the impact of gender-related action over the past two years and inform the development of the UNOG gender equality policy after 2020.

  • Publish the UN-SWAP results for UN Geneva since 2014.

  • Support a Gender Innovation Challenge open to UNOG staff to bring about innovative and concrete proposals to foster gender equality at UNOG.
