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.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
