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.
To support member states in implementing the 2030 Agenda, the UN Women’s Global Flagship Programme Initiative (FPI) “Making Every Woman and Girl Count” (Women Count) aims to effect a radical shift in the availability, accessibility, and use of data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Programme envisions a multi-year and multi-country programme of work, supported by global and regional activities linking normative and technical work on gender statistics at the global level to the regional and national levels through three interlinked areas of work:
In line with this global FPI developed by UN Women HQ, UN Women Arab States Regional Office developed a regional project that is specific to the context of the Arab States region in order to:
1) provide technical support to UN Women offices at the country level on gender statistics to strengthen national-level SDGs monitoring and reporting in a gender-responsive manner; and 2) strengthen regional-level collaboration with key partners to help promote and support country-led plans to localize and monitor the SDGs, as well as to contribute to regional-level SDGs monitoring and knowledge sharing.
Under the supervision of the Deputy Regional Director of UN Women ROAS as the primary supervisor and of the Chief of the Research and Data Section of UN Women HQ in New York as the secondary supervisor, the Regional specialist on Gender Statistics and SDG Monitoring will oversee the regional implementation of Women Count; provide knowledge and capacity development services to UN Women offices and project/programme teams to strengthen their capacities in the area of gender statistics and SDGs monitoring; Support UN Women’s strategic engagement at the regional level, including building partnerships and advocating for better gender data; and contributing to knowledge generation in the area of gender statistics and SDGs monitoring and implementation.

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.
At UN Women, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment of mutual respect. UN Women recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, national origin, or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, competence, integrity and organizational need.
If you need any reasonable accommodation to support your participation in the recruitment and selection process, please include this information in your application.
UN Women has a zero-tolerance policy on conduct that is incompatible with the aims and objectives of the United Nations and UN Women, including sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment, abuse of authority and discrimination. All selected candidates will be expected to adhere to UN Women’s policies and procedures and the standards of conduct expected of UN Women personnel and will therefore undergo rigorous reference and background checks. (Background checks will include the verification of academic credential(s) and employment history. Selected candidates may be required to provide additional information to conduct a background check.)
