"To truly achieve international justice, women and girls must be equal participants. My office has strived to promote gender equality both within our office and through our programmatic work, recognising the paramount importance of taking a gender-inclusive approach to investigating and prosecuting international crimes. Accountability depends on ensuring justice for all victims—including women and girls—first and foremost by hearing their voices."

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • All capacity building and peer-to-peer initiatives with national prosecutors will integrate gender-inclusive approaches to investigating and prosecuting international crimes and will be delivered by gender-balanced teams. I further commit to working with partners to promote gender balance among project beneficiaries.

  • I commit to fostering a safe and inclusive workplace for all genders by maintaining gender balance and including women and men in high-level decision-making in my office.
