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.
  • That Plan International in the Region achieves and maintains gender parity at the most senior levels (CD/RHMT/HoM) and improve the balance of female leadership throughout Plan International’s offices in the region.

  • To build the International Gender Champions network by contacting 10 further potential members within Nairobi and proposing their membership.
