Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations in New York
Jürg Lauber

I pledge to support female leadership at the management positions of the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the UN (PR, DPR, Heads of teams), including by addressing the challenges that may discourage women from occupying leadership positions.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • I pledge to recruit at least one other Gender Champion (PR, USG/ASG, Head of organization) to join the International Gender Champions New York

  • Ensure a positive and healthy work environment for both men and women, in order to achieve gender balance notably through 1) avoiding to convene meetings in early mornings or late afternoons and advocating that these principles are also observed at UN negotiations 2) facilitating flexible working hours and methods in particular in exceptional circumstances (for example snow days, etc.)
