Promoting progress towards building a world that guarantees the rights of women and girls is more than a challenge. It’s a necessity and an obligation.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Implement a new “gender accreditation programme” that will reinforce the capacity of OHCHR country offices to integrate gender in advocacy and programmatic work

  • Ensure the meaningful involvement and participation of young women of diverse origins in programmes and initiatives led by OHCHR at global, regional and national level (expert meetings; panels discussions; capacity building activities, technical cooperation initiatives).
