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 work in Ukraine focuses on supporting the government and civil society in advancing gender equality and implementation of the national and international commitments on gender equality and women’s human rights. UN Women Ukraine implements interventions on the following four thematic priorities: Peace and Security, Humanitarian Action and Disaster Risk Reduction; Ending Violence Against Women and Girls and Women; Women’s Economic Empowerment; Governance and Participation in Public Life. UN Women works closely with the UN Country Team in integration of women’s rights and gender equality in all spheres of UN work. The 2023 Strategic Note is aligned with the UN Transitional Framework covering the following areas: Humanitarian Response; Humanitarian- Development- Peace Nexus and Early Recovery.
UN Women works in integration of women’s rights and gender equality in governance, in particular within its project “Transformative Approaches to Achieving Gender Equality in Ukraine”, funded by Sweden. The project is implemented in partnership with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and engages the following key institutions: the government, the parliament, women’s organizations, media and the private sector. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) is one of the UN Women strategic partners within the project.
When the global HeForShe solidarity movement for gender equality was launched by UN Women in Ukraine, the MFA became the first ministry in Ukraine to commit to conducting a Gender Equality Audit (GEA) as part of the HeForShe commitment. In 2019-2020, the GEA was conducted by the MFA with expert and technical support of UN Women, with the aim to mainstream gender equality in the internal policies, processes and structures at the level of the ministry, work units and individuals. The Ministry demonstrated solid ownership for the GEA results, as evidenced by establishing a GEA Task Force to ensure participatory approach and represent different departments.
The key findings and recommendations of GEA informed development of the MFA Strategy and Action Plan on Equal Rights and Opportunities of Women and Men (hereinafter – Action Plan on EROW&M), including improvement of the normative framework, capacity building and awareness raising activities, improvement of the monitoring system, internal administrative and HR policies, advocacy and information campaigns. Importantly, the Ministry reaffirmed its commitments by establishing the Gender Equality Commission.
To strengthen these efforts, UN Women is now seeking a National Consultant to provide coordination and expert support to the MFA with facilitation and step-by-step implementation of the Action Plan on EROW&M developed for a period of 2023-2025.
