Under-Secretary-General & Special Representative, Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States
Equal participation of all women and girls in every walk of life is an imperative, not a choice. All structural, social and legal barriers must be removed everywhere, not just in words, but in real action.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
As Under Secretary-General and High Representative of the LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS, I commit to advocating and mobilizing resources for the 91 vulnerable member states for the protection and realisation of the equal rights of women and girls, and advancing women’s empowerment for the achievement of the SDGs.
As the High Representative, I commit to supporting and mentoring young female professionals in my Office to help them develop their careers and highlight women in senior positions who can serve as role models or mentors.
