UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
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.
In the last ten years, the Plurinational State of Bolivia has made significant progress in guaranteeing women's rights and compliance with international agreements. However, in the area of economic rights, Bolivia has not made the same progress. Women's economic and productive roles continue to be highly ignored and underestimated in the national context, where four out of ten women live in poverty and the majority come from rural and indigenous populations.
UN Women Bolivia supports women's economic empowerment based on international commitments such as the Beijing Platform for Action, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and the 2030 Agenda, particularly Sustainable Development Goals 5 and 8. UN Women also builds on the growing evidence that gender equality contributes significantly to boosting economies and sustainable development.
The Ministry of Productive Development and Plural Economy (MDPyEP), through PRO-BOLIVIA and UN Women are initiating the implementation of the Project, "Strengthening of Productive Units led by Women with a Gender approach in Bolivia”, funded by KOICA, and whose objectives are: 1) Improve the entrepreneurial capacities of productive units led by women, developing and applying a gender approach to financial, productive and commercial support processes; and 2) Promote the exercise of women's social and economic rights through the implementation of measures and actions within the framework of the unpaid care economy.
Under the supervision of the UN Women Bolivia Country Office’s Representative, the Women’s Economic Empowerment Programme Specialist is responsible for managing the development, implementation, monitoring and reporting of the KOICA-funded Project, including providing technical support to the implementation of the Country Office programme, building partnerships and providing support in developing resource mobilization strategies, and managing knowledge building efforts. The Women’s Economic Empowerment Programme Specialist coordinates with MDPyEP - PRO-BOLIVIA, national partners and stakeholders.

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.
