We want to build a society in which gender is no longer a hindrance to education, employment, entrepreneurship and leadership. Breaking down gender barriers should therefore be a priority in our daily work. I made my choice to make a difference and encourage you to do the same.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Creating more engagement by making an effort to set up ‘Men Engage Geneva’.
