Geneva is at the heart of the multilateral system, home to human rights, humanitarian, health, trade, and disarmament UN agencies, bodies and initiatives – I am committed to using all of these mechanisms in concert with my fellow Gender Champions, in the public and private sector and civil society to further gender equality. I will promote gender equality both inside and outside the Mission as we look to build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic. This will require our collective and collaborative efforts, particularly to address the disproportionate impact it has had on women and girls around the world. The pandemic risks reversing decades of progress towards gender equality. Together, we must ensure that women’s and girls’ rights are advanced, not regressed.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
