There is more to achieve yet in our multilateralism, and diplomacy plays a key role in facilitating progress on gender equality. Therefore we need more committed diplomats around the world to take up these issues so that gender equality is no longer considered just a possibility, but a reality.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
