In addition to the Panel Parity Pledge, each Gender Champion makes two individual annual commitments specific to moving gender equality forward in their organization.
PACJA is Committed to ensuring NDC review and implementation processes are inclusive of women and girls’ participation.
Joseph Mithika Mwenda
I commit to creating increasing opportunities for young women professionals to develop their careers. Through the various initiatives in our youth engagement strategy, we are laying out plans to train and mentor the youth and women across Africa to become empowered and vocal African leaders in the next 5 years.
Kaddu K. Sebunya
I commit to strengthen an inclusive organizational culture that supports gender equality and the inclusion of the persons with disabilities during my tenure through consultations, training, and development of policies.
I will partner with fellow UN Ombudspersons to exchange ideas and best practices on working during the COVID-19 pandemic from a gender perspective.
Furthermore, ICCT commits to ensuring that harmful stereotypes and gendered norms are not present in our work by including gender-inclusive guidelines in the ICCT Journal Author Guideline, as well as in our internal communications guides for our outreach (social media, newsletter, email, etc). We want to ensure that both our contributors, and our audience, also see this gender equity at work.
Alexander von Rosenbach
Mentor 250 young people on Gender Equality and action against GBV, by enhancing and building their advocacy skills and supporting them to develop appropriate gender equality programs within their communities.
Create and promote dialogue and interactions with other IGOs, NGOs and missions in the Hague and set up peer exchanges on the use of gender-transformative and age responsive language. The HCCH will share experience and create dialogue of the importance in an intersectional approach towards empowering women, as combatting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is inextricably linked to gender equality, as it challenges negative gender stereotypes and systemic discrimination arising from prejudice. The HCCH will also increase the partnership of the PB with non-governmental organisations that work in the field of gender inequality.
