I am pleased to be part of the International Gender Champions. Leaders in all sectors play a central role in supporting the achievement of a Planet 50-50 by 2030 and the Gender Champions make an important contribution to this goal.
I commit to undertake the following:
Create women’s leadership curricula on WeLearn, UN Women’s virtual skills school, and train at least 100 corporate women for a strong pipeline of leaders. Support the screening of a series of thought-leadership films and artistic performances that use story-telling to illuminate the damage done by gender inequality, shown at the United Nations and elsewhere, with accompanying panel discussions, supported by UN Women expertise.
Support the implementation of the Secretary-General’s System-wide Strategy for Gender Parity, including through engaging the civil society in shadow reporting for increased transparency and accountability; developing guidance on promoting an enabling environment supportive of gender parity; organizing capacity-building workshops and trainings for the Gender Focal Points of the UN system; and collaborating with DPKO & DFS to increase the number in women in peacekeeping and field operations.
