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. At the country level, UN Women is leveraging its triple mandate in Myanmar to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE) as central to the peacebuilding, crisis response and recovery, democratic governance, and development processes.
Due to persistent gender inequalities and discrimination, the developmental challenges facing Rakhine State are felt especially by women, who are already among the poorest in the country. To address their specific needs and catalyse their leadership, UN Women is working in Rakhine to support strengthening women’s leadership, participation and self-reliance through improved livelihood security with the overall aim to address underdevelopment of the state fueled by high rates of poverty, gendered vulnerabilities facing women including outward migration for work, high rates of unemployment and intercommunal tensions. Guided by principles of national ownership and support towards fulfillment of commitments made by the Government of Myanmar for advancement of women and achievement of gender equality, the program will contribute towards economically empowering women and building the resilience of the family and broader community as a way to contribute towards socio-economic development of Rakhine State.
Reporting to the Regional Advisor, Gender and Resilience Building, the Programme Analyst contributes to the effective management of the Inclusive Development and Empowerment of Women in Rakhine State portfolio by providing substantive inputs to programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation; and leading efforts on gender advocacy and social mobilization.

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.
