Gender equality and women’s empowerment, which lie at the very heart of human rights, have always been a top policy priority of the Republic of Korea. In Geneva, the hub of the multilateral system, I am committed to advancing our collective quest for gender equality and building inclusive cultures at our mission, the UN, and beyond.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
