UN Women is the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide. UN Women supports the UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to ensure that the standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women and girls globally. UN Women works to make the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a reality for women and girls and stands behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life, focusing on four strategic priorities: (i) Women lead, participate in and benefit equally from governance systems; (ii) Women have income security, decent work and economic autonomy; (iii) All women and girls live a life free from all forms of violence; and (iv) Women and girls contribute to and have greater influence in building sustainable peace and resilience, and benefit equally from the prevention of natural disasters and conflicts and humanitarian action.
The Project “Enhancing Access to Justice for Women in Asia and the Pacific: Bridging the gap between formal and informal systems through women’s empowerment and reduction of gender biases” is a five-year programme in the Asia Pacific region that began implementation in 2018, with the generous support of the Government of Sweden. The goal of the project is to enhance access to justice for women in Asia and the Pacific, bridging the gap between formal and informal systems through women’s empowerment and reduction of gender biases. In realising this goal, the programme partners – UN Women, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) focus on the following outputs: (1) Domestic laws adopted and court decisions are consistent with international human rights law and standards, including CEDAW; (2) Gender discriminatory attitudes and stereotyped behaviours towards women by formal and informal justice providers are addressed; and (3) Grassroots women’s organizations and community-based women’s organisations are empowered and well-positioned to document, monitor, liaise and facilitate interactions with formal and informal justice providers.
Under the supervision of the Programme Specialist, the Consultant will be responsible for supporting communication and advocacy strategies associated with the Access to Justice programme priorities. The Consultant is also expected to manage the communication aspects of a regional, governmental Women’s Access to Justice conference including preparation of communication material, facilitation of art exhibition and co-design of event outline, social media outreach and all matter related to press and media involvement. The Consultant will work closely with the Regional Office’s Access to Justice team including a national communication - and event planning consultant. The Consultant is expected to communicate with relevant UN Women country offices across Asia and the Pacific, and internal and external stakeholders, as necessary.
