Ambassador, Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Norway to the WTO and EFTA in Geneva
Gender equality is important and beneficial to men and women. I am committed to contribute where I can in order to achieve it. Both men and women have a shared responsibility for taking care of children and finding the right balance between working life and taking care of their families. I will do my part and remind myself and colleagues never to ignore this.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
Encourage Geneva headquartered partner organizations to promote gender balance and work-life balance at all levels, and request regular updates on plans and resources allocated to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
Promote gender transformative approaches and follow-up in partner organizations’ normative and operational work, and integrate key messages related to women’s rights; gender and diversity; sexual and reproductive health and rights; women, peace and security; and combating sexual and gender based violence, in all relevant work of the Mission.
