Head of Secretariat, The Wassenaar Arrangement
Philip Griffiths

I welcome the opportunity to make this pledge. I and my Secretariat team are committed to playing our part in encouraging and supporting gender equality across the organization in order to strengthen contributions to international peace and security. I wish the initiative every success among the Vienna multilateral community and its global objectives.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Integrate a focus on gender equality in the WA Secretariat’s strategic planning, organisational management and other activities.

  • Encourage WA Participating States to consider gender balance when nominating individuals to serve as Chairs during their tenure of leadership positions of the WA’s bodies.
