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.
Japan has become one of UN Women’s top donors and has strengthened its focus on gender equality over the past few years. Recognizing the importance of Japan in development assistance, a UN Women Japan Liaison Office (JLO) was established in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo in 2015. UN Women presence in Japan provides a strategic entry point and an opportunity to liaise with stakeholders from the Government of Japan, local governments, private sector, media, academic and civil society. It is also an opportunity to work closely with other UN entities based in Tokyo. The work of the UN Women JLO is shaped to contribute to UN Women’s Strategic Plan 2022-2025.
JLO has recently increased its work on advocacy and outreach in Japan to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment. It has also increasingly built partnership with major private sector, public sector, and media partners through social media and several initiatives including HeForShe, WEPs, and Unstereotype Alliance Japan Chapter.
Under the overall supervision of the Director of the JLO, the Communications and Advocacy Consultant will create a knowledge depository and database for HeForShe, WE EMPOWER Japan and to assist managing the Unstereotype Alliance Japan National Chapter and engage with all stake holders, in particular with the private sector and media through these initiatives.
