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. UN Women has a universal mandate that encompasses a normative, an operational/programmatic as well as a coordination role, all of which are closely linked with its unique structure. At the core of its mandate, UN Women plays a leading role in supporting governments in delivering on their gender equality and empowerment of women (GEEW) commitments in the SDGs.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a broad and ambitious development agenda for the world to achieve by 2030. Although governments are the primary drivers for achieving the goals, it is also globally acknowledged that public sector resources, particularly in developing countries, will be inadequate to meet the targets. This acknowledgment provides the basis for forging, as well as sustaining, new and existing collaboration with non-state actors, of which the private sector remains a strong and important stakeholder. The 17 SDG Goals include a stand-alone Goal on Gender Equality, SDG 5. Globally, a growing number of companies are investing in SDG 5 by either direct funding support or through their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). To date, multinational companies have collectively invested more than $300 million and launched programmes on employment and empowerment.
Non-state actors’ CSRs provide a viable opportunity for increasing and sustaining financing for gender equality and the empowerment of women in Nigeria. With a booming private sector in Lagos State, as well as a wide spectrum of multinationals and international development partners across the country, UN Women envisages these non-state actor’s commitments to social responsibility as essential components to realizing the Sustainable Development Goals and the targets in its 5-year Strategic Plan (2022-2025).
In view of this, UN Women seeks the services of a consultant to conduct a rapid mapping and assessment of non-state Corporate Social Responsibility in Nigeria. The consultant will document the non-State actor’s CSR – funding scope, industry of interest, focus area, and targeted beneficiaries, identify opportunities for financing activities in UN Women’s Strategic Note, and plausible limitations for collaborating with each identified non-state actor. In addition, the consultant will develop a database of these non-state actors, their physical addresses, and contacts (focal persons) within the organization responsible for CSR. The consultant will also develop a detailed plan of action/strategy for UN Women to enable the mobilization of resources from non-state actor’s CSR for advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women in Nigeria. The consultant is also expected to prepare a comprehensive but succinct report that will meet the standards and expectations of UN Women in terms of structure and content.
