The best decisions are made when a diverse range of views and perspectives are considered. An equal voice of women and men helps ensure diversity and good decisions. Silencing women’s voices is detrimental to us all.
I will promote work-family life balance among staff in my Mission through: 1) Early information and advance notice of meetings to enhance predictability and planning, 2) Avoid calling meetings taking place during evenings, weekends and public holidays and 3) a policy not to require staff attention to work matters during Holidays.
I will work to promote gender balance at management levels and gender mainstreaming in programmes, projects and policies in Vienna Based Organisations, including by ensuring that all statements delivered on behalf of Denmark have been reviewed to consider including a gender perspective.
