International Gender Champions
A leadership network with over 000 Champions and 000 Alumni.
We bring together decision-makers to break down gender barriers.
I am happy to be an International Gender Champion. I encourage other senior leaders to be part of this campaign for equality.
In essence, gender equality lies at the heart of democracy, human rights, peace, just societies, and well-balanced power relations.
I am motivated to become an International Gender Champion to challenge gender inequality and promote efforts to allow women and men to maximise their potential.
International Gender Champions is about engendering our organizations. I am happy to join efforts to build momentum in Nairobi!
We cannot achieve the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals without fulfilling our global commitment to gender equality and the empowerment of women.
As the Executive Director of Justice Rapid Response, I am proud of the many ways JRR is committed to advancing gender parity in the international justice arena.
As the General Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF), a communion of 148 churches in 99 countries in the world, I commit to further the programmatic work on the role of faith and faith actors...

Realizing zero tolerance through joint leadership: Launch of a publication reflecting on the peer-to-peer learning on preventing and eliminating sexual harassment
This event will launch a publication reflecting on the key messages and recommendations from the previous learning dialogues and continue the conversation on the importance of leadership in addressing, preventing and eradicating sexual harassment in the UN system. It is jointly organized by the CEB Task Force on Addressing Sexual Harassment, the UN Secretariat, UN Women and the Group of Friends to Eliminate Sexual Harassment
As leaders in our personal capacities, we strongly condemn targeted attacks against women and girls, and male allies in Afghanistan. We stand firmly against gender-based violence in all its forms. “Gender Champions who wish to show their support and add their name to the statement above are welcome to email: firstname.lastname@example.org”
Tapping into IGC’s collective wisdom globally was the inspiration behind our first ever IGC Time to Talk - Champion Conversation Series.
On 29 June 2021, six Champions from International Organisations and Civil Society in the Geneva and Den Haag hubs came together to discuss how to keep gender on the agenda within organisations.
Ahead of the Generation Equality Forum (GEF) in Paris this June, the IGC Global Board has approved a new, network wide Pledge to stand for zero tolerance of gender-based violence (GBV), sexist attitudes and behaviour. This will be an IGC commitment to the Generation Equality Forum and aims to tackle some of the deepest and most harmful norms that prevent the equal rights of women and girls being realised.
