The initiative is a reflection of the ever-growing attention which needs to be given to empowering young women and girls. This would enable them to reach their full potential wherever they may find themselves in the world, especially from developing countries.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Advocate for and mobilise resources to ensure young, bright, and innovative women – who are at economically and socially disadvantaged – have a voice and contribute to our multilateral work here in Geneva.

  • Organize, with my fellow women Ambassadors, an initiative to develop and promote confidence among young women diplomats and delegates to Geneva.
