In addition to the Panel Parity Pledge, each Gender Champion makes two individual annual commitments specific to moving gender equality forward in their organization.
I commit to communicating the importance of gender equality, raising awareness of structural inequalities, bias and barriers, and amplifying the voices of those impacted by discrimination through townhalls, speeches, internal and external briefings and bi-lateral and multi-lateral fora.
Accelerate efforts to address the gender digital divide for adolescent girls and young women to equally access online opportunities to learn, benefit from critical health and social services and voice their aspirations.

I will organize at least one event per year on matters relating to gender equality and women’s rights in order to raise awareness for these important issues and to bring about positive change.
Cultivate a positive and supportive organizational culture among all staff, through: ensuring staff at all levels complete mandatory UN courses on gender and harassment, including sexual harassment in the workplace; and working closely with the Gender Focal Points in my organisation to promote greater awareness of gender issues and a gender-sensitive work environment, through campaigns, in-house activities and information sessions for staff.

Strengthen capacity building on gender awareness and on managing work-life balance among the Embassy staff, including by ensuring that all senior staff take an unconscious bias test and by providing at least two dedicated presentations or workshops for all staff.
Commit to one intern scholarship programme per year for a female candidate from a disadvantaged background to develop skills and training for a career in international law.
I will contribute to setting up a mentoring programme for talented young female professionals in the field of international law and diplomacy.
