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 support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I commit to continue supporting all staff members in achieving a good work-life-health-balance in a challenging setting by, inter alia, convening an internal meeting to assess the impact of the measures taken and to develop additional ideas and tools for creating a healthy work environment this year.
I commit to advance the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, in particular within the framework of Switzerland’s co-chairship of the Women, Peace and Security Focal Points Network and with a specific focus on the inclusion of civil society.
