These commitments reflect our two-pronged approach, taking into account the need to progress on gender equality in staffing and the need to continuously factor in gender as one dimension shaping our humanitarian activities.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • The ICRC carries out an external review of gender equality, including equal pay, and takes necessary actions based on the results of this review.

  • The ICRC reinforces its prevention against and response to sexual violence in 14 operational contexts; and commits to engage local communities, including sexual violence survivors, in the design of our humanitarian response.
