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.
Ahead of the Generation Equality Forum (GEF) in Paris this June, the IGC Global Board has approved a new, network wide Pledge to stand for zero tolerance of gender-based violence (GBV), sexist attitudes and behaviour. This will be an IGC commitment to the Generation Equality Forum and aims to tackle some of the deepest and most harmful norms that prevent the equal rights of women and girls being realised.
