UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
In support of the organization’s objectives, the Policy, Programme and Intergovernmental Division (PPID) provides global support to UN Women offices at Headquarters and in all field locations to deliver results in support of UN Women's Strategic Plan 2018-2021 and internationally agreed goals on gender equality and women's empowerment, including the Beijing Platform for Action and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Division provides intellectual and strategic leadership on normative support and the delivery of integrated policy and programme advice, including through policy analysis and gender mainstreaming. The Division leverages innovation, knowledge management, and cutting-edge technical expertise to support UN Women programmes and to build the capacity of partners to deliver results on gender equality and women's empowerment.
The UN Women Training Centre is the training arm of UN Women under the Policy, Programme, and Intergovernmental Division. It is dedicated to supporting the UN and other stakeholders to realize commitments to gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s rights through transformative training and learning. The Training Centre’s catalogue of training for gender equality encompassed 86 courses at one point that range from basic to advanced levels and span several different modalities (online, blended and face-to-face), in different languages (English, Spanish, French and Arabic) and provides possibilities for capacity development in each of UN Women’s strategic areas. All of these courses are based on the key international normative frameworks for gender equality: the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the Beijing Platform for Action (PFA) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In 2020, the TC trained 130,000 participants through our training courses. The Training Centre’s services include technical assistance for content development, design, implementation, documentation, evaluation, and participatory methodologies to develop courses and training resources; databases of training institutions, opportunities and resources; and delivery of training courses including custom-made training upon request. The UN Women Training Centre’s eLearning Campus, launched in 2014, is one of the only public platforms devoted to training for gender equality worldwide. It is accessible in four languages (English, French, Spanish, and Arabic) and has 147,487 active registrants as of the end of 2020.
