Volkan Bozkir
President of the 75th United Nations General Assembly, United Nations General Assembly
Volkan Bozkir

For generations, women have endured undue discrimination, marginalization, and hardship. We must ensure that no woman feels the need to justify her presence. And we must ensure that no woman is under threat, underpaid, or underestimated, for the work she carries out. No one should be limited by a glass ceiling or held down by a Velcro floor.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Create an Advisory Group on Gender Equality with diverse expertise to support me in mainstreaming gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls throughout the work of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly.

  • Actively recruit women to the Office of the President of the General Assembly across all levels and geographic regions, including to achieve gender parity in senior management.
