We all have a role to play in achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment. As a Gender Champion, I am responsible for hardwiring inclusion and diversity into my team – every decision, every day.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Support staff to balance work with caring/family responsibilities by promoting flexible work arrangements and striving to schedule internal meetings within core hours.

  • Use my role as President of the Conference on Disarmament in 2020 to promote diversity and inclusion in the conference, including through: working closely with the Disarmament Impact Group; promoting use of the recommendations contained in the Gender and Disarmament Resource Pack; ensuring diversity on any panels we organise during Australia’s Presidency; and encouraging an evidence based approach to inclusion and diversity by asking UNODA to collect data on CD participation.
