Paul Ladd

I am honoured to be an International Gender Champion. Gender equality is critical to UNRISD's mission of ensuring that social equity, inclusion and justice are central to development thinking, policy and practice. All of UNRISD's seminars respect the gender panel parity pledge.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Ensure that relevant gender concerns feature in all UNRISD publications, including research and communications and outreach tools.

  • Recruit staff and collaborating researchers in a way that strives to maintain gender balance.
