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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN WOMEN leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
HeForShe is UN Women’s global campaign to engage men and boys as advocates and agents of change for the achievement of gender equality and women’s rights. The campaign encourages them to speak out and take action against inequalities faced by women and girls.
Globally, the campaign started in May 2014 and contributed to the adoption of Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Agenda which stresses the centrality of women’s rights, empowerment and gender equality to human development.
UN Women Mozambique, in partnership with the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Action and other relevant stakeholders, intends to implement the HeforShe Campaign with a view to mobilize a wide range of stakeholders from ordinary men and women, girls and boys, community opinion leaders, to political, economic, social, religious and cultural figures to actively engage towards the construction of socio cultural norms supportive to gender equality and women’s empowerment. The campaign must have a bottom up approach being informed by and represent the voices of women, men, boys and girls from all walks of life particularly those at the community/rural level.
Under the overall guidance of the representative and supervision of the programme specialist, the Campaign Manager (CM) will be responsible for the development of a high visibility and impact campaign for the period of 2017 to 2020 and implement all aspects of it until December 2017. The CM will work closely with the programme officers, communications focal persons and knowledge management officer to deliver a campaign with content related to all areas of work of UN Women at the country level and link up with the HeforShe Team at HQs to ensure alignment with corporate guidelines. Furthermore, the CM will engage with national partners through the UN Women Civil Society Advisory Group with a view to devise a context based campaign.
