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'm committed to work with partners and women's groups to facilitate the identification of good practices on gender and disaster risk reduction (“Women and Girls’ voices in disaster risk reduction”) and their promotion at the 2018 Regional Platforms (see attached calendar) and the 2019 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (13-17 May 2019, Geneva)

I will pursue bi-monthly meetings with UNISDR’s Gender Focal Point to scale up programme deliveries around gender as well as UNISDR Staff’s awareness, commitment and ownership of gender issues, and address gender issues in the workplace requiring management’s attention.

Commit to speaking out boldly and continually for girls, women, and gender equality, including placing sexual and reproductive health as its bedrock. This will happen in 10 keynote speeches and 10 interviews, as well as in 7 advisory roles to the 2018 G7, corporations, and governments.

Consistently advocate for gender equality and mainstreaming by raising and supporting gender-related issues in meetings and other fora that I attend.

Participate personally or through a staff member in at least two activities outside the mission that are aimed at advancing gender equality per year.

Continue promoting respect of gender equality in my Mission, and ensuring a balanced participation in our common endeavors.

Advocate for improved approaches that uphold the gender perspective in all Vienna based International Organizations, by means of my national interventions and statements, as well as through my professional exchanges and outreach activities.

Promote a strong focus on women’s rights and gender equality within the Permanent Mission and in our national statements.

I will actively participate on the Global Board of Men Engage Alliance and advance practical steps with the Alliance to ensure grounded feminist approaches to the work of transforming masculinities and engaging men and boys.

I will set ambitious annual targets for the appointment of more women to Head and Deputy Head of Mission positions in UN peace operations in the field, with a view to reaching gender parity among these senior leadership positions no later than 31 December 2021.
