Director-General, United Nations Office at Geneva
Tatiana Valovaya

As the first female Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva and having worked in male-dominated spheres during many years of my career, my ultimate goal is that women and men are granted equal opportunities in my organization and beyond. It is self-evident that we will not achieve any of our goals if half of humanity is left aside.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Organize a follow up survey on staff perceptions about gender equality at UN Geneva to assess the impact of gender-related action over the past two years and inform the development of the UNOG gender equality policy after 2020.

  • Support a Gender Innovation Challenge open to UNOG staff to bring about innovative and concrete proposals to foster gender equality at UNOG.
