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.

Millions of women and girls worldwide suffer some form of gender-based violence, be it domestic violence, rape, female genital mutilation/cutting, dowry-related killing, trafficking, sexual violence in conflict-related situations, or other manifestations of abuse. In fact, for women and girls 16-44 years old, gender-based violence is a major cause of death and disability (About UNiTE: Fact Sheet, p. 1 http://endviolence.un.org/pdf/factsheets/about_unite.pdf; Up to 70 per cent of women experience violence in their lifetime (Violence Against Women: The Situation; http://endviolence.un.org/pdf/factsheets/unite_the_situation.pdf).
Violence against women persists in every country in the world as a pervasive violation of human rights and a major impediment to achieving gender equality. Such violence is unacceptable, whether perpetrated by the State and its agents or by family members or strangers, in the public or private sphere, in peacetime or in times of conflict. The UN Secretary-General has stated that as long as violence against women continues, we cannot claim to be making real progress towards equality, development, and peace (“In-depth study on all forms of violence against women”, Report of the UN Secretary-General, 6 July 2006, p. 9;).
States have an obligation to protect women from violence, to hold perpetrators accountable and to provide justice and remedies to victims. Eliminating violence against women remains one of the most serious challenges of our time. The knowledge base and tools to prevent and eliminate violence against women developed over the past decade must be utilized more systematically and effectively to eliminate all forms of violence against women. This requires clear political will, outspoken, visible and unwavering commitment at the highest levels of leadership of the State and the resolve, advocacy and practical action of individuals and communities (ibid;)
In order to support the Government of Georgia to meet its obligations undertaken on the international, regional and local levels inter alia in terms of eliminating violence against women and girls (EVAWG) and in particular domestic violence and sexual violence, with the generous support by the Swedish Government and the European Union, alongside with the government and development partners, UN Women is working towards addressing gender inequality in a coherent and comprehensive manner, covering a wide range of issues, including prevention and response to violence against women and girls.
The overall goal of UN Women’s EVAWG programme is to support creation of an enabling environment to eliminate violence against women and girls, especially sexual and domestic violence in Georgia.
In order to ensure successful implementation of the programme and to meet contractual obligations, UN Women plans to hire a Programme Associate, who will work under direct supervision of the UN Women EVAWG Programme Analyst, overall guidance of the UN Women National Programme Officer and UN Women Operations Manager.

The Programme Associate will carry out the following functions:
