Gender inequality is not a woman’s fight alone; it is a collective effort and we each have a part to play in balancing the scales towards a more equal society.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I commit to conducting a capacity assessment among staff and senior management on gender equality and women’s empowerment at UNON, as a first exercise to update UNON’s Gender Parity Policy.
I commit to operationalize the Network of Women Leaders at the Nairobi duty station, including organizing regular meetings of the Network at least every six months, with a view to supporting and mentoring women staff members to advance in their careers at all levels at UNON.
