Gender equality is not a zero-sum game. Equal rights and opportunities for women and girls, and men and boys, as well as the full enjoyment of their rights to health and bodily autonomy, will benefit individuals, families, communities, and the entire society.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Throughout 2024, I will mentor four young female professionals and colleagues to empower them to assert themselves and voice their opinions, while also encouraging them to join and establish networks in Geneva with the aim of enhancing their career development and growth.
Throughout 2024, I will hold two dialogues with students, one on engaging men and boys for gender equality, and a second on mentoring female young professionals, in collaboration with Permanent Missions, thus providing a safe space for exchanges of views and promoting positive change.
