In addition to the Panel Parity Pledge, each Gender Champion makes two individual annual commitments specific to moving gender equality forward in their organization.
Organize or co-organize at least two events in the year aimed at promotion of gender equality and advancement of women’s rights at the international organizations in Vienna, as well as supporting actions or initiatives taken by other Permanent Missions and/or civil society in this regard.
In 2018 I will promote gender mainstreaming and women empowerment by actively participating in panels, round tables and other formal and informal discussions within the areas covered by my diplomatic Mission. I will strongly advocate for including gender equality in main discussions and negotiations at the UN Agencies and other International Organizations based in Vienna.
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.
Present a strong voice on gender equality, women and girl's rights, and sexual and reproductive health and rights by IPPF's Member Associations at the Universal Periodic Review.
