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.

Supported by the Government of Denmark, in 2024 UN Women is starting a new multi-year programme in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to build sustainable peace, resilience, and economic transformation by upholding women’s rights and promoting inclusive decision-making processes. Entitled “Women Increased Leadership for Resilient and Peaceful Societies”, the programme will also have a regional component implemented by the Europe and Central Asia Regional Office (ECARO) which is concentrated on knowledge generation and mobilization of partners to build alliances and create communities of practice in the region. Working within the framework of the country-level UN Women Strategic Notes, the programme will support gender mainstreaming in EU accession as a shared goal across the three countries. The program will support candidate countries in accelerating progress on gender equality by specifically strengthening those institutional structures, processes and procedures that are responsible for transposing the EU gender equality acquis and integrating gender responsiveness into laws and policies. While each country will have its own needs and advance at its own pace in the candidacy process, the regional component will in particular support the development of a set of EU-aligned, standardized approaches and tools, which clearly respond to the needs and challenges of the countries, and is expected to result in a consistent approach to gender mainstreaming, strong alignment with EU GAP III, and enhanced and accelerated harmonization with the EU Gender Equality acquis.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.

At UN Women, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment of mutual respect. UN Women recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, national origin, or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, competence, integrity and organizational need.

If you need any reasonable accommodation to support your participation in the recruitment and selection process, please include this information in your application.

UN Women has a zero-tolerance policy on conduct that is incompatible with the aims and objectives of the United Nations and UN Women, including sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment, abuse of authority and discrimination. All selected candidates will be expected to adhere to UN Women’s policies and procedures and the standards of conduct expected of UN Women personnel and will therefore undergo rigorous reference and background checks. (Background checks will include the verification of academic credential(s) and employment history. Selected candidates may be required to provide additional information to conduct a background check.)
