Philippe Lazzarini

A modern UNRWA is one that promotes gender equality and parity in senior positions, provides an inclusive work environment and has zero-tolerance for sexual harassment in the workplace. I am very proud to be surrounded by strong professional female colleagues and will ensure that UNRWA is a place where everyone thrives, without discrimination.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • I commit to reach gender parity in senior level in UNRWA during my tenure.

  • I commit to strengthen an inclusive organizational culture that supports gender equality and the inclusion of the persons with disabilities during my tenure through consultations, training, and development of policies.
