The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (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, humanitarian action, human rights and peace and security. UN Women provides support to Member States’ efforts and priorities in meeting their gender equality goals and for building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
One of UN Women’s key programme areas worldwide and in the country of Georgia is women’s economic empowerment. Currently, with the support of the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs, UN Women is implementing the 3-year project “A Joint Action for Women’s Economic Empowerment in Georgia” (JAWE). The project has three outputs with activities engaging these three groups and building sustainable and mutually beneficial links between them. All outputs contribute to one outcome, for women to fully realize their economic rights with the support of a gender-responsive private sector and an enabling State legislative and economic environment. In the project, UN Women disseminates information about gender equality and the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) to companies and supports them to design and implement action plans for women’s empowerment.
One of the key state partners of the project is the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia and its LEPL Enterprise Georgia. UN Women facilitated a Participatory Gender Audit (PGA) exercise for Enterprise Georgia throughout November 2018- June 2019 which looked at whether internal practices and related support systems for gender mainstreaming are in place and effective at Enterprise Georgia and reinforce each other; identified the gaps and challenges, in terms of effective gender mainstreaming and generated recommendations for addressing them.
One of the recommendations of the PGA is to create a post of a Gender Adviser at the Enterprise Georgia who will work for the agency and mainstream gender into policy documents, manuals, procedures and guidelines of the agency. As a follow up on recommendations of PGA, UN Women and Enterprise Georgia signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 8th August 2019. In order to support the achievement of the results spelled out in the Memorandum of Understanding, UN Women Georgia Country office would like to hire a Project Analyst / Gender Adviser for Enterprise Georgia.
