Natalia Kanem

I am honoured to be part of the International Gender Champions. Promoting gender equality and women's empowerment is essential in its own right, and key to the full realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Ensure that mandatory trainings on gender transformative change and on prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) are supplemented with additional modules to be tailored to the specific learning needs of different business units.

  • Establish a senior accountability mechanism to help ensure a gender-responsive workplace, where staff feel safe and supported in terms of opportunities and facilitative policies.
