Remarks by Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Executive Director of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka at the Elsie Initiative Fund: High-Level Virtual Launch of the Second Programming Round

In her speech at the Elsie Initiative Fund: High-Level Virtual Launch of the Second Programming Round, UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said: «The pace of change in women’s representation in national militaries globally remains too slow. So, now we know that progress is possible because we have seen in it one part of our work, I think this should inspire us and fire us to also push further in all other areas that are still lagging behind.»
