At the heart of international relations and development lies the transformative issue of gender equality. It is our shared responsibility to apply it in everything we do. 

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Implement a hiring process that, when candidates are equally qualified, gives preference to those with expertise in gender studies.

  • Take the next steps in developing a gender equality and inclusion plan for the Graduate Institute (a) by mapping existing internal programs and policies to advance gender equality and inclusion, and (b) communicating them broadly on a dedicated webpage to improve knowledge about them and enhance their effectiveness.
