Gender equality is a matter of partnership. It requires burden- and power sharing, breaking free from stereotypes and the will to adapt the narrative so that men see themselves as allies who benefit from an equitable society just as much as women do.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • I am committed to honor the twentieth anniversary of the 1325 resolution by actively supporting initiatives that accelerate the full and effective implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda, including the co-organization of a side event hosted by the Focal Point Network on Women, Peace and Security in 2020.

  • I pledge to support leadership training programs for our female staff members at the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the UN in order to promote equal opportunities for women in management positions.
