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.

Personal Commitments

I commit to strengthen the gender dimension in various fora and dialogues, particularly in the area of digitalization and gender statistics on the occasion of the UN World Data Forum 2021 in Switzerland, during the CSW65 and in connection with the UN Security Council Resolution 1325.
I pledge to support all staff in achieving a good work-life-health-balance in an increasingly challenging setting by, inter alia, convening an internal meeting to discuss a healthy work environment and develop measures to improve the work-life-balance.
