Annual Meeting: International Gender Champions


First Annual Champions meeting at

Palais de l'Athénée, Geneva

An incredible gathering and celebration of our first year of operational commitments.

International Gender Champions (IGC) came together at the Palais de L'Athénée in Geneva's old town for their first annual meeting on November 2. This unique Geneva-born initiative of male and female leaders is working together to bring down gender barriers. Already over 120 Geneva leaders of International Organizations, Ambassadors, Civil Society, and Business have become champions. Together they have made at total of over 300 specific individual commitments to advance gender equality. IGC co-founders Ambassador Pamela Hamamoto, UN Geneva Director General Michael Møller, and Women@TheTable Executive Director Caitlin Kraft-Buchman presented the group's first annual report and announced that the initiative is poised to go global with a first new branch in New York expected in the course of 2017. "This initiative can and has already made a real difference" said UNOG Director General Michael Møller. "We have only just started to show what is possible"
