I am glad to be an International Gender Champion and to contribute to the collective effort of breaking down gender barriers. The elimination of discrimination against women and girls is a key priority for Mexico. We make every effort to mainstream gender equality in all the work we do across international organizations in Geneva.

Gender equality is not only a human rights matter. It is also an essential element of democracy and global justice. It is part of the solutions to the challenges that the international community is facing, and a precondition for more just, secure and sustainable societies.

 

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Draft and sponsor at least three initiatives (resolution, decisions, events or joint statements) with strong language on gender equality and empowerment in international organizations.

  • Ensure adequate follow up of the decision on women and intellectual property, proposed by Mexico and adopted at the 22nd session of the Committee on Development and Intellectual Property of the World Intellectual Property Organization.
