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.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
