Ambassador, Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Canada to the WTO in Geneva
Women have always led. We have been majority contributors to global economic, political and social progress over centuries. However, the structural barriers and persistent negative perceptions associated with women in leadership has meant that our contributions are often minimized as part of the narrative and left out of the history books. Equality means ensuring that women’s contributions are properly counted and recorded, while increasing women’s access to formal decision-making structures. As an International Gender Champion, I commit to help change the narrative around women in leadership.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
Commitment to hold an event at the WTO on trade and gender.
Commitment to hold an internal brown bag mentoring event.
