In addition to the Panel Parity Pledge, each Gender Champion makes two individual annual commitments specific to moving gender equality forward in their organization.





Ensure gender equality in all visiting delegations representing Cyprus in Geneva.

Re-double my efforts to mentor women colleagues and to actively support them in their career development.

Encourage the use of gender-based analysis by my staff and the OSCE Secretariat and field missions as a matter of course, whenever developing policy, projects or other activities.

Organize at least one side-event or working meeting to asses gaps in the promotion of gender parity in staffing of international organizations, specifically IAEA, and other aspects of gender mainstreaming and propose concrete measures that can be put in place to to strengthen the gender perspective in the nuclear field.

Promote a gender perspective in the preparatory process of the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons towards the 2020 Review Conference, by encouraging a discussion with all stake-holders, participating in specific side events and supporting a gender perspective in agreed documents

Maintain gender balance in my Branch tapping into both short- and long term measures, including the creation of a more conducive work environment, coaching arrangements and work-life balance for women, parents or other situations that require new work methodologies; producing an aggregate of results in the implementation of this goal.

I will ensure that the team of the Mission's interns is gender balanced and that they are senstive to these issues both in their professional and private lives.

In partnership with other members of the Women ambassadors' group, I plan to participate in the organization of events relating to the UN initiative "100 Years of Multilateralism in Geneva" marking the Centenary of the founding of the League of Nations.

Achieve an average of 50% female participation in the VCDNP biannual training courses on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, and feature female speakers in 8 of the VCDNP’s Monthly Seminar Series.

Hold two events focused on the role of women in nuclear (e.g. a salon dinner at the ambassador level and a public event).
