Canada has shown leadership in advancing gender equality, and is committed to doing more both at home and on the world stage. We clearly understand that when women and girls see their human rights fully respected, everybody wins.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Mentor and sponsor two women and two young women during 2021, and develop programmes that encourage diversity and foster inclusion.

  • Advocate for strong language on gender equality, taking into account age and diversity and highlighting the specific and different needs of girls in all policy and standard-setting negotiations, while also raising awareness of structural inequalities, bias and barriers, and amplifying the voices of those impacted by discrimination in person and in the media.
