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 in Georgia supports state and non-state partners towards the achievement of substantive gender equality in Georgia. In line with national and international commitments, UN Women works on the levels of policy and legislation, institutions and grassroots, in order to achieve transformative results for increased gender equality and greater protection of the rights of women and girls.
In April 2023 UN Women, with the generous support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) launched a four-year project “Women’s Increased Leadership for Democracy in Georgia” (WILD). The project aims to ensure that women and girls in all their diversity fully and equally participate in decision-making and benefit from gender-responsive governance in Georgia. In order to contribute to the achievement of this impact-level goal, the project sets forth two interlinked outcomes, which are as follows - outcome 1: Women and their organizations in all their diversity are engaged in and influence political life and decision-making at all levels in Georgia; and outcome 2: Gender equality and women’s meaningful participation and leadership at all levels is promoted through adoption and implementation of gender-responsive legislative and policy frameworks and practices.
Under outcome 1, inter alia, UN Women provides technical support to the Government of Georgia to strengthen institutional mechanisms on gender equality and to develop and implement laws and policies on gender equality and gender mainstreaming in line with BPfA+25 review process and CEDAW recommendations. In line with these efforts, UN Women intends to support the State Audit Office – the supreme audit institution of Georgia in conducting a Participatory Gender Audit (PGA). PGA is a gender mainstreaming tool used by organizations to reflect and analyze their own gender capacity, challenges and good practices. It is a process that promotes organizational learning on gender equality and gender mainstreaming through a participative methodology. The PGA methodology has been elaborated by ILO in the beginning of the 2000s. UN Women in collaboration with International Labour Organization (ILO) introduced a methodology of PGA to Georgia in 2012. Since then, UN Women has supported PGAs in a number of ministries/state agencies and has developed and gradually expanded a pool of national experts who have received training and certification of PGA facilitators in the international training Center (ITC) of ILO, Turin, Italy.
The State Audit Office has expressed goodwill to undergo PGA. The PGA will look whether in the State Audit’s Office internal practices and related support systems for gender mainstreaming are in place and effective and reinforce each other; it will monitor and assess the relative progress made in gender mainstreaming in the organization; will identify the critical gaps and challenges, in terms of effective gender mainstreaming and recommend ways for addressing them; and last but not least, document good practices towards the achievement of gender equality.
In light of the above, UN Women intends to hire a total of three (3) national consultants from the roster of ITC-ILO certified group of facilitators of Participatory Gender Audit to perform work spelled out in the section below.
