I believe that gender equality will be achieved if leaders give space and support to women and girls, particularly the younger generation, to have their voices heard at all levels.  Plan International’s programmes and influencing across the region are contributing to making this change at all levels.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

Personal Commitments

In 2021 Each Plan International leadership team in the region will have improved their understanding of, and alignment to Plan International's feminist leadership principles.
I commit to ensure that by December 2021, all new Plan International projects in this region will have used our Gender Marker in their design and 80% of eligible projects will be shown to be gender transformative.
