With the support of the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs, in December 2017 UN Women launched the project “Joint Action for Women’s Economic Empowerment in Georgia” (JAWE). With the overall goal that women, particularly the poorest and most excluded, are economically empowered and benefit from development in Georgia, the project works with private sector companies; government agencies; and women, including women entrepreneurs. The project’s expected outputs are:
To address gender-based discrimination in the workplace, UN Women Georgia developed an online sexual harassment course for public servants and since early 2017 the Public Defender’s Office (PDO) has been hosting the course on its website. UN Women office in Georgia has further advocated for inclusion of a clause on non-acceptability of sexual harassment at the workplace in the Code of Ethics for Public Servants and supported the Ministry of Defence and the former Ministry of IDPs from the Occupied Territories, Refugees and Accommodation in the development of internal complains’ mechanisms on the cases of sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination.
In 2018, UN Women in partnership with national statistical office – GEOSTAT and generous funding from the EU completed a nation-wide survey on Violence against Women that has found that 20 per cent women has experienced sexual harassment in Georgia and 10 per cent of women have admitted experiencing it at the work-place. The reported prevalence rates are high provided also that the field work for the research was carried out in the beginning of 2017, before the global #metoo campaign and few high profile sexual harassment allegation cases brought to public attention also locally in Georgia. These events further increased public’s awareness and sensitivity to sexual harassment prompting the Gender Equality Council of the Parliament to come forward with an initiative to better regulate sexual harassment in the Georgian legislation in line also with the recently ratified Istanbul Convention.
With this increased awareness and the improved regulation of the issue in making, several public institutions, civil society organizations and private companies express interest in developing internal procedures and policies to receive and accommodate sexual harassment complaints. To meet this growing demand, UN Women Georgia Country Office would like to hire a National Consultant to assist various organizations (up to 15 – mainly project partners or WEPs signatory companies) with the adjustment and operationalization of the internal sexual harassment complaints’ mechanisms.
