Having worked on gender issues at a national, regional and international level for more than three decades, my objective in joining the IGC is to continue my work of mainstreaming gender into all activities, changing mindsets in the work I do during my duty tour in Geneva.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Continue to raise the visibility of issues of gender equality and mainstreaming, particularly the need for greater participation of women in trade, through wider public engagement with individual IGC members as well as with other important multi-stakeholder platforms and institutions operating at the national, regional and/or multilateral levels.

  • Collaborate with TIG members to create learning opportunities for countries and other stakeholders on topics mentioned in the Buenos Aires Declaration on Women and Trade by delivering seminars at the WTO on a range of issues impacting the role of women in trade and sharing good practices of how countries are empowering women in trade and collating them in a publication to be shared ahead of the 12th WTO Ministerial Conference.
