I. Organizational Context
The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (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 Turkiye, in line with its global Strategic Plan 2022-2025 and Country Strategic Note (2022-2025), and the overall UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for Turkiye (UNSDCF) (2021-2025), UN Women works in four thematic areas: (i) governance and participation in public life; (ii) women’s economic empowerment; (iii) ending violence against women and girls; and (iv) women, peace and security, humanitarian action and disaster risk reduction. UN Women contributes to three UNSDCF outcomes: 1) Women and girls have improved and equal access to resources, opportunities, and rights, and enjoy a life without violence and discrimination; 2) By 2025, Persons under the Law on Foreigners and International Protection are supported towards self-reliance. 3) By 2025, governance systems are more transparent, accountable, inclusive and rights-based with the participation of civil society, and quality of judicial services is improved.
Towards these goals, UN Women Turkiye has actively been implementing programmes and projects since 2012 that aim to advance gender equality, improve women’s access to opportunities, rights and services in political, social, and economic life and combat gender stereotypes, discrimination, and violence, as required by international and national legal and policy commitments. In particular, UN Women Turkiye focuses on initiatives in 1) Women’s leadership and political participation 2) Ending violence against women and girls 3) Gender-sensitive refugee response 4) Gender-responsive planning and budgeting 5) Private sector partnerships and male engagement and 6) UN System coordination. UN Women Turkiye collaborates with numerous partners – central and local level government authorities, civil society organizations, including women’s organizations and platforms, opinion-makers and activists from different sectors, academia, private sector companies, media, development partners and other UN agencies. It commits itself to the Leaving No One Behind principle, by supporting targeted actions to remove the obstacles that marginalized and vulnerable groups of women face in accessing their rights and to promote them as agents of change.
The Unstereotype Alliance is a thought and action platform convened by UN Women, that uses advertising as a force for good to drive positive change. It seeks to eradicate harmful gender-based stereotypes. The alliance is focused on empowering women in all their diversity (race, class, age, ability, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, language, education, etc.) and addressing harmful masculinities to help create a gender equal world. The Alliance brings together a powerful global coalition of industry leaders behind the common goal of eliminating gender bias and harmful gender stereotypes from their advertising.
Recognizing the power of partnerships to accelerate progress, this industry-led initiative convened by UN Women unites leaders across business, technology and creative industries to tackle the widespread prevalence of stereotypes that are often perpetuated through advertising and content. UN Women Turkey has supported the Unstereotype Alliance in initiating its Turkey Chapter with participation of the Turkish advertising industry and companies.
The Unstereotype Alliance Turkey Chapter has been launched in December 2019 as an action coalition of gender equality champion advertisers, brands and companies. Convened by UN Women Turkey Country Office, the platform is under the leadership of Reklamverenler Dernegi (Advertisers Association). This is the second national chapter in the world.
Reporting to the Programme Analyst (Private Sector Partnerships) in UN Women Turkey office, UA Programme Analyst is responsible for supporting the planning, coordination and implementation of the Unstereotype Alliance Turkey Chapter to increase the standing and awareness of transforming gender-based stereotypes in media and advertising content.

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.
