I will prioritize the pursuit of gender equality and the empowerment of women in the fight against corruption. Gender and anti-corruption are mainstreamed throughout all the Sustainable Development Goals, in addition to being reflected directly in Goals 5 and 16 and their associated targets, and are on top of IACA agenda. IACA is committed to boosting the empowerment of women in the fight against corruption. Women in all spheres and levels of our society must be agents of change and agents of defeating corruption.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Mainstreaming gender considerations into IACA’s academic programmes and trainings.

  • Establish a Fellowship Programme for women in anti-corruption with the aim of increasing the number of women studying anti-corruption through awarding scholarships and work experience opportunities.
