UN Women is the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. UN Women is dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.
All human development and human rights issues have gender dimensions. UN Women focuses on priority areas that are fundamental to women’s equality, and that can unlock progress across the board. Five focus areas of interventions include ending violence against women; economic empowerment; leadership and participation; peace and security; and national planning and budgeting.
UN Women’s Multi Country Office, based in New Delhi, India, covers four countries of the region, i.e., Bhutan, India, Maldives, and Sri Lanka.
UN Women works on several fronts towards ending violence against women and girls. This includes tackling its main root cause: gender inequality. Interventions focus both on prevention as well as response mechanisms. Efforts are multiplied through advocacy campaigns and partnerships with governments, civil society, private sector and sister UN agencies. Initiatives range from working to establish legal frameworks and specific national actions, to supporting prevention at the grassroots level, including in conflict and post-conflict situations and building capacities of relevant stakeholders. UN Women supports data collection on violence against women, facilitating new learning on the issue.
The Directorate of Women Empowerment, Department of Women and Child Development (DWCD), Government of Madhya Pradesh and UN Women have been working together on their shared mandate of enhancing gender equality and women empowerment in the State. Under this collaboration, UN Women provides technical assistance to the DWCD’s initiatives to address issues of violence, through policy-based and community-level interventions.
In the last two years of collaboration with the Government of Madhya Pradesh, joint initiatives have been undertaken to mainstream gender in the development processes, with a focus on the following area:
In the present phase, UN Women is deepening its engagement in the State through scalable initiatives on ending violence against women and girls, particularly working on the following issues, from among many others (a) sexual harassment of women in public spaces, (b)sexual harassment of women at the workplace as well as private spaces, and (c) declining child sex ratio. In this context, UN Women seeks to hire a Technical Consultant to provide support to the Government of Madhya Pradesh.

The evaluation process for selection of the candidate will be based on the following assessment:
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.
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.
