Fostering an equitable, diverse and inclusive work environment through cross-functional initiatives, such as training on diversity, inclusive leadership and unconscious bias.

Seek gender balance in our staff and in our network of collaborating researchers.

Promote gender awareness at the Permanent Mission by encouraging personnel to take the Harvard test on unconscious bias and gender.

Championing to ensure that World Sailing committees and panels are of mixed gender.

Promote gender parity/equality in all public statements that we make in appropriate forums (HRC, UNHCR, UN ECE, WIPO).

Zero tolerance to any form of sexual harrasment or questionable behaviour.

I am committed to lead UNOPS to achieve the equal representation of men and women across our workforce, irrespective of levels – by 2020.

I am committed to lead UNOPS to meet the targets set by the Secretary-General’s UN System-Wide Strategy on Gender Parity.

Develop an actionable strategy towards achieving gender parity across the organization, including at the highest levels of management.

Conduct a rigorous review of our approach and our policies on promoting a work place culture that embraces diversity and equality, including proactively safeguarding against sexual harassment and misconduct (both within the Global Fund and with implementers), and address any gaps identified in current approach or policies.
