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.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments
