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.
Placing women’s rights at the centre of its efforts, UN Women is mandated to lead and coordinate United Nations’ system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming are translated into action. It is also mandated to provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The Intergovernmental Processes & Inter-Agency Coordination Unit in UN WOMEN India Country Office (ICO) plays a central role to deliver on UN Women’s normative support functions and strengthens linkages between normative work and operational activities. It contributes to the Entity’s support for the development and strengthening of a comprehensive set of global norms, policies and standards on gender equality and women’s empowerment that is dynamic, responds to new and emerging issues, challenges and opportunities and is applied through action by Governments and other stakeholders at all levels. The Unit also has special responsibility for the coordination of substantive servicing of intergovernmental and expert bodies as mandated in relevant legislative documents.
UN Women supports the Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India, in promotion of gender equality and empowerment of women and girls, as part of its Strategic Plan.

UN Women is the Ministry of Women and Child Development’s (MWCD) partner for the promotion of the women’s agenda during India’s Presidency of G20, starting in December 2022.
Within the current country programme, UN Women has initiated several initiatives to document the programmes it supports through multimedia content. Compelling written stories, case studies turned into multimedia content will be used across multiple international and national platforms, forums and media to draw the public’s attention to achievement of women-related milestones, with a particular focus on achievements in India’s Aspirational Districts.
For this purpose, UN Women India is seeking 2 professional Written Documentation Specialists to document the concept, existence and stories of Aspirational Districts for the duration of 30 Days. The selected materials will be used for MWCD-UN Women joint advocacy and communication objectives of India’s Presidency of G20 and other national and international public outreach.
