Gender equality is imperative to the success of all humankind.  We must work hard to ensure our society is not overlooking the best ideas for action and the best leaders and implementers simply because of their gender.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Mobilize at least three other leaders to become International Gender Champions, raising the opportunity to join the NY Hub and helping them understand and complete the process - and to live the commitments

  • Mentor women in their careers, particularly young women as they graduate, talking to them directly and ensuring they see openings, coaching them to success.
