Champion
Stephen de Boer
Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Canada to the World Trade Organization
Stephen de Boer

Being an International Gender Champion requires a genuine commitment. I believe that we have to lead by example and actions, in our organization and with our peers, to advance gender equality. I intend to do just that in Geneva and at the WTO in particular.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • The Permanent Mission will advocate for Canada to nominate candidates for appointment to senior WTO positions with the goal of achieving gender parity at the WTO.

  • The Permanent Mission will hold an annual unconscious bias awareness training for all staff
