Costa Rica: President Luis Guillermo Solis Rivera "[We commit ourselves] to place at the centre of public policy the shared responsibility for caregiving as an engine for cultural change, expanding and diversifying its alternatives; to promote instruments that generate scientific evidence on gaps in gender data that result in barriers to [using] women’s talent; [to] create jobs through affirmative action for women through public/private partnerships; [to] establish job creation programmes with affirmative action…to benefit youth, women and persons with disabilities; [to] create and implement a seal of quality to check and certify gender equality in businesses and institutions; [to] guarantee the effective implementation of inspections in places of work; [to] work within the framework of the UN tirelessly together with our partners and elders and other groups that will facilitate this process; and [to] achieve the objective [that] would give content to the promises and commitments made here, which would be the election of a women as the next Secretary-General of the UN."
