In addition to the Panel Parity Pledge, each Gender Champion makes two individual annual commitments specific to moving gender equality forward in their organization.
Support the UN Secretary-General in the development of a more equitable and enabling workplace environment through implementation of the zero-tolerance policy on sexual harassment, including through strengthening policies and development of measures and products to better inform and support staff.
Ensure that all selection panels for new positions in the mission include at least one man and one woman as we believe this will help us avoid gender bias in selecting our personnel.
Through UNICEF’s GenderPro Initiative, train and recognize applied gender programming expertise across the globe. By 2021, 80% of UNICEF gender specialists and gender focal points will have completed GenderPro learning programmes.
Advocate for gender parity in all fora of the General Assembly through the selection of co-chairs, cofacilitators, panelists and through active outreach to Member States.
That the system reaches gender parity at the most senior levels (USG/ASG) for posts in which I have direct authority by the end of 2021, and across the system well before 2030.
I commit to spearheading and organizing initiatives in Kenya that showcase the empowerment of Kenyan women, and that support and nurture the rights of girls.
Ensure that gender considerations are applied effectively in the internal work of the Mission, in our HQ, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and in how we engage with partners.
In our dialogue with, and in governing boards of, international organizations in Geneva, encourage organizations to: 1) Attain gender balance at management levels (P5 or equivalent and above) through both short- and long term measures, including the creation of a more conducive work environment, 2) Integrate the gender dimension in programmes, policies, and normative and operational work, and 3) Put in place comprehensive and transparent policies to prevent and address sexual abuse and exploitation.
I commit to ensuring that a sexual harassment in the work place training is provided to all staff at the Geneva Mission.
