The time has come for a new global agreement to end the scourge of violence against women. Join this webinar as we mark 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, and the roll-out of the IGC Gender-based Violence Pledge.
On 21 October 2021, the Council of Women World Leaders and International Gender Champions co-hosted a leadership exchange with the former President of Finland and a member of the Council of Women World Leaders, Tarja Halonen.
As leaders in our personal capacities, we strongly condemn targeted attacks against women and girls, and male allies in Afghanistan. We stand firmly against gender-based violence in all its forms. “Gender Champions who wish to show their support and add their name to the statement above are welcome to email: firstname.lastname@example.org”
Tapping into IGC’s collective wisdom globally was the inspiration behind our first ever IGC Time to Talk - Champion Conversation Series.
On 29 June 2021, six Champions from International Organisations and Civil Society in the Geneva and Den Haag hubs came together to discuss how to keep gender on the agenda within organisations.
