Message from the President of the UNWG

Dear Members,

Welcome to our renewed Newsletter. You will discover new sections proposed by our Editors; It is also my pleasure to let you discover the interview of the Director-General of UNOG, the first woman to occupy the post. I hope you will be pleased with the little surprise within the interview.
We are blessed to have had very interesting participation from Permanent Missions of USA, Morocco, Libya and Malta and we look forward to the upcoming participation of the Permanent Missions of Pakistan, Ecuador, and India. I would like to personally thank all the participating Spouses of Ambassadors, my dear friends, Maria, Bouchra, Laila, Mateja, Marium, Teresa and Shushma.
Our EC Team continues to innovate with the new Special Events series of 2021. The Spouse of the Ambassador of France, Mrs. Elisabeth Grigoriantz Rivasseau, inaugurated the first of our Special Events in January. The Spouse of the Director-General of WIPO, Mrs. Claire Bostock Tang, will be hosting a series of 4 Special Events, that we hope will be your Path to Happiness! Thank you dear Elisabeth and Claire.
I take this opportunity to thank, on behalf of the UNWG–Geneva, our dear Eliane. Thank you dear collegue for all your selfless efforts. You are thruly a pilar of the UNWG.
On a more personal note, I would like to wish all my friends who celebrate the several Millennia old Festival of Nowruz, a very happy and healthy New Year! March holds not only the Nowruz celebrations but also the celebration of Women, hence ladies, wishing you a belated happy International Women’s Day. I will leave you with the Zoroastrian saying: “Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds”, be good to each other and to the world.
