“Education and training play a special role in empowering women in non-proliferation, arms control, and disarmament. It is imperative that women are provided with opportunities to grow, enhance their knowledge and skills and apply them to strengthening international peace and security.”

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Achieve gender parity in the VCDNP biannual training courses on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, including among the lecturers for the course.

  • Hold and participate in at least three events focused on the role of women in nuclear (panel discussions, specialized events, and outreach to universities).
