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.
Closing persistent gender gaps in public life has emerged as a critical policy issue as countries increase their efforts to foster inclusive growth and build trust and confidence in public institutions. While the degree of challenges across the global community may differ, the aspirations are largely the same. The SDG 5, 5.5 on women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life underscores member states renewed commitment to achieve gender equality and women full participation and leadership in public administration. Men and women’s equal participation in public, political and economic life is part of generating a more equitable and sustainable economy and society. Gender diversity in decision-making contributes to improved trust in public political institutions and favors more informed and inclusive policy making. Ensuring that women have a voice in shaping policy is crucial to responsive and accountable governance.
Despite some global improvement, significant gaps still exist in women’s participation in the public domain, including in leadership roles and policy-making, thus undermining economic growth, human development and poverty reduction. The availability of gender-disaggregated data is vital for understanding both the drivers and barriers to achieving gender equality, for informing policy, tailoring policy recommendations and implementing them.
Through the global Gender Equality in Public Administration (GEPA) initiative (www.undp.org/gepa), UNDP aims to establish a global tracking mechanism that will institutionalize the importance of monitoring the state of gender equality in the civil service. As the evidence base grows, measures taken to advance women’s participation and leadership in the civil service will be available for comparison and analysis.
To begin the development of this tracking mechanism, UNDP undertook a global e-query to map national civil service tracking mechanisms and the availability of gender-disaggregated public service data. The results of the e-query show that it will take significant effort to access the information we need on women’s presence and leadership in public administration.
This assignment will build on the global e-query to work directly with government institutions that house the data, which is oftentimes available but not immediately accessible without a proactive effort. It will also be undertaken within the African Union (AU) policy framework of the African Charter on Values and Principles of Public Service and Administration (2011). This Charter sets out the normative basis for the modernization of African public services and an inculcation of values founded on equity, accessibility, affordability, efficiency, transparency and human rights.
