Milestone - Gender parity achieved in the UNRC system

10 May 2018

In this video, UN Resident Coordinator in Bangladesh, Mia Seppo says the words that every woman needs to hear—

"If I can do it, you can do it. Go for your dreams and keep you ambitions high."

This inspiring video features female UN Resident Coordinators who share their experience working as leaders in international development. Recently, the UN Resident Coordinator system, which leads 130 UN Country Teams, and operates in 164 countries and territories, achieved gender parity, in line with one of the UN Secretary-General’s priorities to reform the UN system.

“For the first time, there are equal numbers of women and men nominated as UN Resident Coordinators – our leaders on the ground. Gender parity is essential to the effectiveness of our work, and to end power imbalances that contribute to sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse”, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said while sharing this video on Twitter.
