Champion
Sabina Stadler Repnik
Ambassador, Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Slovenia to the United Nations in Geneva
Sabina Stadler Repnik

As a firm supporter of gender equality, I am proud to take the role of gender champion. I strongly believe in necessity for creation of enabling environments, which facilitate growth and self-fulfillment for all, no matter the gender. I am serving in the time Slovenia's three permanent representatives to the United Nations in New York, Vienna and Geneva are women, which proves that Slovenia is not only talking the talk, but also walking the walk.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • To advocate systemically for gender-responsive approach to programming and strong language on gender equality and empowerment in the resolutions, statements and initiatives of the Geneva-based international organizations.

  • To further promote a work environment which favours equal opportunities and a positive work-life balance, f.ex. by flexible working hours, including by ensuring simplified procedure for sick leave of staff with children.
