Including a gender perspective is key to ensure we approach complex problems in their
totality, and that we do not ignore the rights or needs of any one group. Only by taking a
gendered approach will we be effective in promoting peace, stability and economic impact
for society at large.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Promote gender transformative approaches and follow-up in partner organizations’ normative and operational work, and integrate key messages related to women’s rights; sexual and reproductive health and rights; women, peace and security; and combating sexual and gender based violence, in all relevant work of the Mission.
Encourage Geneva headquartered partner organizations to promote gender balance and work-life balance at all levels, and request regular updates on plans and resources allocated to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
