Permanent Representative, Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Nations
Yoka Brandt

Society can’t succeed when half of its population is held back. We should raise our voice for equal participation, for equal opportunities and for equal rights. I hereby pledge to raise my voice for gender equality, and to promote an organizational culture that embraces diversity and equal opportunities within the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Nations.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

Personal Commitments

I will advocate for all incoming delegations to the Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York to have balanced gender representation. This expectation will be communicated clearly to incoming delegations. Senior management of delegations that fail to reflect gender representation will be notified.
I will actively promote and pursue an inclusive working environment and strive and uphold an organizational culture in which every employee feels safe and welcome to express his/her/their identity and ideas amongst colleagues and in the presence of leadership.
