IACA celebrates International Women’s Day

Along with its anniversary, IACA also joins the celebration of International Women’s Day with a strong commitment to Sustainable Development Goal of gender equality (SDG 5).

IACA mainstreams gender considerations into its academic programmes and trainings and encourages increased female participation in the field of anti-corruption through scholarships and work experience opportunities.

Since its inception, IACA is committed to ensuring gender balance (in a spectrum of 45-55%) in the selection and recruitment of its staff. IACA has maintained such gender balance, with over 50% of female staff at present.

As part of the International Gender Champions Initiative, The Dean of IACA, Mr. Thomas Stelzer, expressed the will to pursue gender equality and women empowerment in the fight against corruption. These issues, which are prominent on IACA’s agenda, are mainstreamed throughout all SDGs and at the same time reflected specifically in Goals 5 (gender equality) and 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions). The Dean also stressed that IACA is committed to boosting the empowerment of women in the fight against corruption and that women in all spheres and levels of our society must be agents of change and agents of defeating corruption.
