Director, Office of Legal Affairs International Atomic Energy Agency

Michelle Bachelet, the executive director of UN Women, charged women to “make gender parity a lived reality, not just a mantra.” Peri Lynne Johnson has done just that in her own career at the United Nations, becoming the first woman legal advisor for both the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Johnson’s life-long belief that there are no limits to what professional women can accomplish was instilled in her from childhood by her father, an attorney active in the civil rights movement.
