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. Since 2015 UN Women has been concentrating its interventions toward the realization of following strategic goals: women’s leadership and participation; implementation of women, peace and security agenda, including a humanitarian response, and gender responsive governance. UN Women works closely with the UN Country Team in integration of women’s rights and gender equality in all spheres of UN work. Simultaneously, UN Women launched a rigorous fundraising for both individual agency projects and joint programmes in several thematic areas.
To support the government in the restoration of governance and reconciliation in crisis-affected communities of Ukraine UN Women will implement a joint (with UNDP) programme in two pilot regions. The primary objectives of the programme are: to improve regional and local government capacity in gender-sensitive recovery planning and service delivery; to enhance community security for women and men in conflict-affected areas and to enhance the capacity of gender equality advocates and women affected by conflict to demand accountability and transparency in local decision-making and spending.
The scope of work of the Programme Specialist requires experience and in-depth understanding of gender equality and women’s rights, governance as well as programme management expertise, to translate the Project objectives into effective development initiatives and results. It also requires developing mutually reinforcing partnerships with relevant Government counterparts, UN organizations and inter-agency mechanisms, CSOs, and with bilateral and non-traditional donors in order to advance the gender equality and women’s rights agenda.
Under the overall guidance and supervision of the UN Women Gender Advisor, the Programme Specialist will provide technical assistance and programme management ensuring high quality UN Women interventions. The Programme Specialist will provide guidance and substantial input to the implementation of the gender mainstreaming and women’s empowerment activities of the programme.

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.
