We have no other option than to walk the talk if we are serious about gender equality in daily life. We all have a responsibility to contribute to the progress of gender equality benefitting, as it does, each and every one of us.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Following the positive feedback received regarding last year's commitment, organize a workshop for all staff members on sexual harassment prevention and gender equality awareness. The workshop will be facilitated by an external expert.
Establish an internal "family friendly" policy urging employees, and in particular those with managerial responsibility, whenever possible not to initiate meetings before 09:30 and after 16:00 which would offer flexibility to staff members who have children at day care or at school.
