Miroslav Lajčák
President, UN General Assembly
Miroslav Lajčák

"We need the collective efforts of leaders to harness the full potential of women as agents of change. As decision-makers, it is our responsibility to lead by example in breaking down gender barriers and ensuring equal opportunities for women at all levels within our own organization. I will do my part in raising awareness among Member States about this crucial issue as President of the UN General Assembly."

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Maintain gender parity within my own Office, including at senior levels.

  • Strive towards gender parity in the selection of co-chairs, moderators and cofacilitators of various General Assembly high-level meetings and processes.
