The International Gender Champions initiative provides the opportunity to uphold commitments made by the international community to break down the barriers working against half of humanity. Implementing these commitments is essential to realizing the full potential of women, and therefore is of benefit to all. The initiative encourages us to embrace our commitments at the personal level as we put them into practice in our daily lives. It helps us become the change.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Participate in 10 events highlighting gender issues at the United Nations as well as other fora.

  • Reach out and engage 2 male colleagues in joining this initiative.
