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 Policy Division develops and implements UN Women’s work on analysis, research and knowledge management that provides the evidence base for the advice and guidance UN Women provides to the intergovernmental process, the UN system, and to UN Women staff working at country and regional level. It undertakes issues-based research; analyzes data on country, regional or global trends; builds a knowledge base on policy commitments and their implementation; proposes evidence-based options for global policy, norms and standards and for UN Women’s flagship programmes; and contributes substantive inputs to policy advocacy and technical cooperation programmes.
UN Women—in partnership with the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the European Union (EU)—implements the EU-funded programmes: WE EMPOWER G7 (“Women’s economic empowerment at work through responsible business conduct in G7 countries”), Win-Win (“Win-Win: Gender Equality Means Good Business”) and WE EMPOWER Asia (Promoting Economic Empowerment of Women at Work in Asia) which are operational in Canada, Japan and the USA; Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Uruguay; and China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, respectively. The overall objective of these programmes is to contribute to gender equality and women’s economic empowerment.
Targeting women-led enterprises and networks, multinational corporations and other relevant stakeholders in the 20 programme countries and the European Union, the programmes will promote gender-responsive business conduct through fostering business links, joint ventures and innovation, while supporting inter-regional dialogues and exchange of good practices.
To bring a strong EU perspective and ensure collaboration with EU partners, including companies, women entrepreneurs and their business networks, in these three programmes, the joint WE EMPOWER G7 –Win-Win Steering Committee has decided to recruit an EU expert to support the three programme managers and teams.
The EU expert will be responsible for enhancing and coordinating the three Programmes’ EU component with the view to further improve the integration of EU interests into the programmes’ implementation.
