Women play a vital role throughout the Agency, but they are still not adequately represented. For me, gender parity means 50 percent women and 50 percent men – and that is the goal I set for myself. It will be challenging, but it is not impossible.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Institute measures to increase the representation of women and achieve the goal of gender parity in the Professional and higher categories by 2025.

  • Establish the IAEA Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship Programme for women students who wish to pursue a degree in STEM, focussed on nuclear sciences and technology.
