Developing actionable initiatives is imperative for breaking down barriers to gender equality and preparing our next generation, both women and men, to continue necessary reforms until this inequality ceases to exist.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I will work to increase the number of female participants benefitting from the CTBTO’s capacity building programs. Doing so will build knowledge, raise awareness, and enable participants to become competitive, high-quality candidates for contributing to the work of the CTBTO Provisional Technical Secretariat.
I will review and address the inequalities inherent in our existing frameworks, which constrain early career candidates from moving into relevant fields of work, beyond internships. As part of this process, I will identify potential sources of funding for cultivating early career individuals — especially women and people from developing countries — and ensure they have access to meaningful job experience qualifying them to contribute to the mission of international organizations.
