Gender equality is fundamental for socio-economic progress.

For me, gender equality is about ensuring a fair distribution of power, influence and resources and that we do not ignore the rights or needs of any one group. In addressing the global challenges we face today, we need to utilize the knowledge and resources of the whole population.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

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.
Promote gender transformative approaches and follow-up in partner organizations’ normative and operational work, and integrate key messages related to women’s rights, gender and diversity; sexual and reproductive health and rights; women, peace and security; and combating sexual and gender based violence, in all relevant work of the Mission.
