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. Through the Women Count and the Building Back Better programmes, UN Women supports the production and use of gender statistics across Asia and the Pacific.
Established with the support of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family (MOGEF) of the Republic of Korea in 2021, the UN Women Centre of Excellence for Gender Equality supports traditional and non-traditional stakeholders in realizing commitments to gender equality, women’s empowerment, and the rights of women and girls through training, research and network-building. The Centre embraces innovation, including as it relates to new technologies. Throughout its statistics workstream, the Centre leverages the use of technology and innovation for data production and to generate new knowledge. For instance, the Center is working to generate a women and technology index to inform advocacy efforts and related decision making. Within this context, and to gather expert’s views, the Center is organizing an Expert Consultation.
II. Scope of consultancy
To advice the Center on the development of a Women and Technology Index (from here onwards, WTI) and to inform the discussions that will take place during the first Expert Consultation that the Center will organize on this topic, UN Women is looking to engage a senior consultant with expertise on the multiple areas that make up the women and technology field.
The Gender Statistics team within the UN Women’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific has conducted analytical work on select areas pertaining to women and technology, such as the use of digital platforms for care entrepreneurship, as well as the use of geospatial information for assessing climate change related risks.
Within the context of supporting the implementation of the Center’s work programme, and contributing to the implementation of the Regional Office’s Statistics Work Plan, the Senior Consultant is expected to prepare a set of deliverables, as set out below.
