Ambassador Alexandros Alexandris
Permanent Representative | Mission of Greece to the United Nations in Geneva
“Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary pre-condition for the creation of sustainable, democratic and peaceful societies. This is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making, and when the different behaviors, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favored by the larger society.”
I, Alexandros Alexandris, support the Geneva Gender Panel Parity Pledge.
As the Permanent Representative of the Mission of Greece to the United
Nations in Geneva, I commit to also undertake the following:
* Recruitment of more women with respect to job vacancies-openings.
* Diffusion and promotion of the “gender parity culture” through
electronic social media.
