Sofia Borges

At the United Nations Foundation, we believe in the power of multilateralism to address the issues that affect the global community. Inclusive multilateralism is critical to achieving equitable and sustainable growth, including realizing SDG 5 on gender equality. I pledge to continue to advocate for a world where no one is left behind and where girls and women are equal everywhere.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

To meaningfully engage youth leaders, especially young women leaders, the UN Foundation will host an annual interactive dialogue with its senior leadership and youth leaders, including Girl Up’s Teen Advisory Board, starting in 2022.
To continue and expand our efforts on greater diversity, equity, and inclusion, the UN Foundation (UNF) will pilot a semester-long undergraduate paid internship program for young women of color in New York and DC through local university partnerships in 2022.
