Diplomats, UN agencies and the private sector needs to do much more to break down the barriers that hold back women in the workplace, the UN's new chief in Geneva said on Wednesday.

In a call for greater equality promoted by the US Mission in Geneva, United Nations Office at Geneva Director-General Michael Moller said he wanted to help create a network of "gender champions" in the Swiss city and beyond.

He explained what the #FutureSheDeserves project is all about to Daniel Johnson.
