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.
The UN Women Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Framework was developed with a view to provide a framework for risk management and has been developed as part of a corporate wide initiative to proactively protect the organization’s goals and reputation. The Legislative Framework Policy was developed with a view to: (a) establish the requirements for a central on-line repository as the sole authoritative source for all internal UN Women Policies, Procedures and Guidance across the Organization, and the maintenance thereof; (b) establish responsibilities, procedures and instructions for the management, development, approval, promulgation, review and update of Policies, Procedures and Guidance and the authorization of exceptions and resolution of inconsistencies relating to such documents; and, (c) establish the hierarchy of Policies, Procedures and Guidance.
Under the direct guidance and supervision of the Deputy Director, DMA and Chief, Legal Section, DMA, the Risk Management and Legislative Framework Specialist provides technical functional and administrative support required to achieve a sustained practice of ERM for the organization and to ensure that the practice of Enterprise Risk Management is embedded in UN Women’s daily operational work. The Risk Management and Legislative Framework Specialist oversees, analyzes and assesses operational controls and risk mitigation activities across the organization; and supports the establishment of a culture focused on pro-active risk awareness by the effective execution of control functions.
Under the guidance of the Chief, Legal Section (Matrix Manager), the Risk Management and Legislative Framework Specialist assists in the management, oversight and implementation of the Legislative Framework and the maintenance of UN Women’s repository for Policies, Procedures and Guidance, the Legislative Framework Portal (“LF Portal”), which includes the organization and coordination of the activities of the Legislative Framework in order to achieve the objectives set forth in the UN Women Legislative Framework Policy.

Required Skills and Experience
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.
