In addition to the Panel Parity Pledge, each Gender Champion makes two individual annual commitments specific to moving gender equality forward in their organization.





IOM will develop and make compulsory a new Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and abuse training package for all IOM staff worldwide and for all IOM Implementing partners.

IOM will present, yearly, to its Governing body the annual IOM report on the UN-System Wide Action Plan on Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.

In line with the Secretary-General’s Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) initiative, continue to prioritize implementation of women, peace and security (WPS) mandates in United Nations peacekeeping operations, in particular women’s meaningful participation in political and peace processes and increasing the number of women in peacekeeping.

Engage with internal and external partners and actors working to promote gender equality to further shed light on the centrality of the WPS agenda, including through: a high-level mission to a UN peacekeeping operation; and a joint project with academia and civil society.

I will promote work-family life balance among staff in my Mission through: 1) Early information and advance notice of meetings to enhance predictability and planning, 2) Avoid calling meetings taking place during evenings, weekends and public holidays and 3) a policy not to require staff attention to work matters during Holidays.

I will work to promote gender balance at management levels and gender mainstreaming in programmes, projects and policies in Vienna Based Organisations, including by ensuring that all statements delivered on behalf of Denmark have been reviewed to consider including a gender perspective.

Produce an actionable set of guidelines, based on best practise, designed to foster gender balance across all our membership

Ensure all our workforce are paid equally, regardless of their gender, and obtain Equal Pay Certification for the EBU

I will allocate adequate financial and human resources to ensure the sustainability of the United Nations Department of Political Affairs activities and progress on gender parity and gender equality, as well as engage all staff, women and men, in an ongoing dialogue to hear their challenges and concerns in terms of career development through frequent meetings.

Ensure that where possible on all country visits I meet with women's civil society organisations and/ or visit a programme focused on furthering gender equality and women's empowerment‎.
