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.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Advocate for norms for meeting schedules that will prevent discrimination against those who have responsibility to care for others.

  • Systematically advocate for strong language on gender equality and gender empowerment in resolutions, statements, and side events.
