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 Strategic Partnerships Division (SPD) works to strengthen UN Women’s position as a partner of choice for gender equality and the empowerment of women (GEWE) among governments and private sector actors around the world. The Division does this by positioning GEWE in the intergovernmental and multilateral fora, and engaging with governments and private sector corporations, foundations and individuals as policy, programme and resource partners. A key premise for SPD is that engagement with partners should be holistic based on multiple aspects of partnerships, including policy advocacy and resource mobilization.
The Chief, Public Partnerships reports to the Director, Strategic Partnerships Division. The Chief, Public Partnerships is responsible for relations with donor governments and public institutions. This includes inter alia the development and implementation of the fundraising and resource mobilization strategy and implementation plans to ensure the continued growth and predictability of both regular (core) resources and providing support to mobilization of other (non-core) resources, as well as advocating for and encouraging preference for high quality other resources within the spectrum of other resources contributions. This includes: 1) planning, formulating, and implementing resource mobilization strategies and activities in close coordination with the Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships and Advisory Services Section; 2) leading and nurturing a corporate network for public-sector resource mobilization; 3) leading donor intelligence generation and supporting systems for effective reporting and increasing donor visibility and meeting donors’ visibility requirements; 4) representation duties; 5) collaborating with internal partners across the UN system and leading corporate efforts, under the Funding Compact, to increase UN Women’s involvement in joint programmes and United Nations pooled funds; 6) overseeing the building and maintenance of relationships with IFIs, multilateral development finance providers and intergovernmental bodies including the G7 and G20; 7) leading and managing the public partnerships team, including UN Women Liaison Offices in Brussels, Copenhagen, UAE and Japan; 8) working with other parts of the house including Legal to ensure that mechanisms and procedures for securing of donor funding are as streamlined and efficient as possible.

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.
