In addition to the Panel Parity Pledge, each Gender Champion makes two individual annual commitments specific to moving gender equality forward in their organization.
Create an inclusive environment and robust recruitment procedures that promote diversity and remove any biases or limitations with respect to female candidates obtaining positions in my office. I commit to continually improving gender balance in my office until such time as organisational gender parity goals have been met.
I will provide the opportunity and encourage young women to be volunteers in Embassy events and functions in the effort to gain knowledge of diplomatic responsibilities as well as increase awareness of good practices in gender equality through official dialogues and statements from the Embassy.
