Since December 2022, the UN Women Liaison Office (LO) to the African Union and UN Economic Commission for Africa has fully de-linked from the UN Women Ethiopia Country Office (CO) as a separate entity to enhance UN Women’s strategic level engagement with the AU, UNECA and other key stakeholders, The LO has an upgraded leadership status, focused role/functions, strengthened capacity and a clear partnership strategy to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment at the continental level guided by the new UN Women Liaison Office Strategic Note, multi-year planning framework for 2023-2025, with key development and operational results. The Strategic Note is aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the global UN Women Strategic Plan (2023-2025), the AU GEWE Strategy (2018-2028), Agenda 2063 and other key GEWE, peace and development frameworks of Africa, among other relevant global and regional normative frameworks.
The intensity and the scope of the work undertaken by UN Women Liaison office team, requires a high-functioning and resilient team, clear on the mandate, effective and professional in communicating, focusing on achieving the one liaison office vision, and delivering on the programme, projects targeted results and joint initiatives which includes facilitating the acceleration of the ratification and implementation of international and regional women human rights instruments; strengthening the AU’s capacities for human rights programming, gender mainstreaming and monitoring; supporting the participation of the women’s rights movement in Africa in AU processes among other things. . Therefore, bringing the team together to review the AWP and the SN 2023-2025, discussing professional development needs, build capacity with regards to enhancing interpersonal collaboration; respecting different working practices; bringing the best out of each other as a team, and leading on their respective TORs and roles will create an optimal working environment to successfully deliver on the mandate of the office.
Considering these significant structural changes at the UN Women Liaison Office, the strategic note and operational plan need to be revisited to ensure a shared value and mutual understanding of the obligations of each team member. It is against this background that an in-person team retreat will be held from (TBC) February 2023, in Lalibela, Ethiopia. To facilitate the 3 days interactive session, UN Women seeks to hire an experienced consultant to support the objectives of the planned retreat as outlined below through well-structured discussions and engaging activities.
