The global challenges we face demand international cooperation and creativity stemming from our diversity to build resilient societies and sustainable peace and security for all.  When women are missing from decision-making and their rights are neglected or abused, we as leaders need to question the systems and structures which have contributed to exclusion, discrimination and harm, and work to develop a more inclusive and responsive global governance system. We recognise that this starts with our mindsets and extends to a critical evaluation of all our policies and programmes, behaviours and practices.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Set up a gender, diversity and inclusion working group across teams within the organisation which will meet at least bi-monthly to advance the mainstreaming of gender equality and diversity in GCSP’s culture and programmatic activities, and include training to advance an inclusive, respectful and enabling environment.
Strengthen inclusivity of different genders, geographies and perspectives in our dialogue activities: (a) Consult with women in the process design of all dialogue activities, including through bilateral meetings, and incorporate their perspectives (b) encourage parties to include women representatives (c) Consult with peers to form a cross-hub Impact Group focusing on Women Peace and Security.
