UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
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.
UN Women Rwanda's Strategic Note 2019-2023 cut across UN Women's Global Strategic Plan 2018-2021 and that of 2022-2025 and is closely aligned with the new national development framework including Vision 2050 and the National Strategy for Transformation (NST1 2017-2024), the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2018-2024), the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Africa’s Agenda 2063. The UN Women Country program embraces the core principle of Leave No One Behind (LNOB) outlined in the Agenda 2030 and also reflects the latest recommendations of the CEDAW committee for Rwanda (CEDAW/C/RWA/Q/7-9) especially those related to social norms and attitudes change; on the need to increase women’s participation in leadership positions especially at the local level and in the private sector, and further enhance Gender Equality and women’s empowerment accountability frameworks. Also, key is the need to employ rights-based and sustainable prevention and response interventions to address GBV.
The programme focuses on two main priority/impact areas from UN Women Global Strategic Plan (2018-2021) including Priority area 1: Women lead, participate in and benefit equally from governance systems and Priority area 2: Women have equal economic opportunities and economic autonomy.
