"I embrace the responsibility of being an International Gender Champion and reaffirm my commitment towards achieving and maintaining gender equality at all levels including leadership roles throughout the Mechanism. This is all attainable, by giving an active voice to women in their day to day functions within the Mechanism. In our appearance as an entity, the inclusion of gender in every program, every focus, every agenda and subsequent outcome should be reflective of an action that is driven with gender equality at the forefront."
In job categories or sections where one gender is particularly under-represented (or unrepresented), I will work with the managers and human resources to identify appropriate outreach mechanisms to identify and attract candidates for future recruitment exercises.
As the Hiring Authority for the Mechanism, I will encourage hiring managers for all positions to recommend equal numbers of female and male candidates for each selection exercise, and where that is not possible, I will require written explanations. In job categories or sections where one gender is particularly under-represented (or unrepresented), I will encourage hiring managers to prioritize recommending candidates of that gender, and require explanations where that is not possible.
