I commit to remain final approver for all recruitment until we have achieved gender parity.

I commit to undertake meetings with senior managers every six months to review overall progress on gender parity and mainstreaming.

Mentor and sponsor at least two female professionals in the public policy field, so they can improve their performance and secure opportunities that advance their careers.

Organise seminars and other activities to raise awareness among young adults in the Geneva region about gender equality and, especially, to explore practical actions and strategies they can apply to improve gender equality in their workplace and environment.

Promote work life balance in the Geneva Office of UNFPA by, inter alia, not conveying meetings early in the morning or late in the afternoon, striving to make the agenda and work initiatives predictable, allowing staff members to better organize their own personal - work balance, encouraging them to take the adequate time leave. The Director will also endeavor to lead by example.

Make available training courses and knowledge materials on gender parity, gender impact and other human rights issues related to parity, in order to foster career and professional development. The training will be provided by the Fund, and the Director of the Office will work with the interested staff to secure enough time to conduct the training.

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.

Promote work-family life balance through: 1) Early information and advance notice of meetings to enhance predictability and planning, and 2) Avoid calling meetings taking place during evenings, weekends and public holidays.
