Gender, Equality and Inclusion
At the Kofi Annan Foundation, inclusion, diversity, gender equality, and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do. Tolerance, inter-cultural dialogue and respect for diversity are more essential than ever in a world where people are becoming more and more closely interconnected.
Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.
