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.
UN Women is leading and coordinating the United Nations System to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It is providing strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with the private sector, civil society, government and other relevant actors.
With 10 years to go to the end date of gender inequality in 2030, UN Women is calling for enhanced and sustained actions to deliver on our collective global commitments as they are reflected in Sustainable Development Goal 5 and in the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action which celebrates 25 years in 2020. To this end, UN Women established the Generation Equality Campaign and will together with key partners mobilize UN Member States, private sector companies and civil society for accelerated action in the years to come through Action Coalitions. Under the leadership of the Director of the Nordic Liaison Office, UN Women is looking to recruit a consultant to strengthen partnerships with the private sector in the Nordic countries for improved and accelerated action on gender equality in the context of Generation Equality as well and for longer-term engagement across UN Women’s portfolio.
