International Gender Champions: Empowering Women in Global Leadership

The IGC Special Event took place on the 12th of March at the Canadian Residency in the Netherlands, hosted by the Ambassador of Canada to the Netherlands, Hugh Adsett. The CEO of White Ribbon Campaign Canada, Humberto Carolo, was featured as the key speaker sharing experiences and insights from his expansive career working to end violence against women, promoting gender equality and a new vision of masculinity. IGC Bano was invited along with other leaders of international organisations, Ambassadors and diplomats committed to the mission of gender equality. The event offered insights into the ways that organisations, such as Gender Concerns International can work in the future with male-focused NGOs to end gender violence by combating toxic masculinity and empowering women.
