I firmly believe in a world of equal opportunities for all. From the experience of last decades we all know that legislation on gender equality is not enough. We need to change the way we organise and behave at home as well as at work. The International Gender Champions is a great initiative to promote this change through shared good practices.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
