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.
The Policy, Programme and Intergovernmental Division provides global programming and policy support to allow UN Women offices at Headquarters and in all field locations to deliver effective and efficient initiatives to support the implementation of UN Women’s Strategic Plan 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 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 work of UN Women’s Ending Violence against Women (EVAW) Section is focused on a comprehensive approach to ending violence against women that addresses legislation and policies, prevention, services for survivors, research and data, and creating safe public spaces in different settings. The section also oversees the successful implementation of different global programmes where UN Women is a partner, including the Spotlight Initiative.
The Spotlight Initiative has been designed by the UN and EU as a global financing mechanism in support of the implementation of the SDGs mainly Goal 5 and Goal 16. The Initiative contributes to accelerating the realignment of the United Nations development system with the 2030 Agenda and enable critical system-wide capacities that can lead to more impactful and synergic support by the UN country team in line with the UN System-Wide Strategic document. The Spotlight Initiative provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate that a significant investment in gender equality, backed by expertise, a comprehensive theory of change and strong partnerships, can make a transformative difference in the lives of women and girls, as well as contribute to the achievement of all the SDGs.
UN Women, UNDP and UNFPA, as core agencies, along civil society, provide technical support in the design and implementation of activities, under the leadership of the Executive Office of the Secretary General. UN Women as the technical and normative lead on gender equality and women’s empowerment in the UN System, houses the Technical Unit of the Spotlight Secretariat. At country and regional level, UN Women is implementing key components of the programmes, and in most Spotlight countries, UN Women has been designated as the Technical Coherence Lead agency to guide the UN system in the implementation of strong, coherent programmes that will make a difference in women’s and girls’ lives and will deliver results on ending violence. In this context, UN Women’s Ending Violence Against Women (EVAW) Section in New York provides daily support to country and regional offices to accelerate implementation, deliver results, document lessons learned and build the evidence of what works and what doesn’t in different contexts addressing violence against women and girls.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
At UN Women, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment of mutual respect. UN Women recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, national origin, or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, competence, integrity and organizational need.
