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 in Georgia supports state and non-state partners towards the achievement of substantive gender equality in Georgia. In line with national and international commitments, UN Women works on the levels of policies and legislation, institutions and grassroots, in order to achieve transformative results for increased gender equality and greater protection of the rights of women and girls.
In September 2019 UN Women Georgia with the generous support of the Government of Norway launched a three-year project “Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia” (GG4GEG). The overarching goal of the project is to ensure that governance systems are gender-sensitive and enable gender equality in Georgia. The specific objectives of the project are, inter alia, to institutionalize gender equality and gender mainstreaming and develop gender mainstreaming capacity at the national and local levels. One of the methodologies to achieve these objectives is a participatory gender audit (PGA).
PGA is a gender mainstreaming tool for promoting organizational learning on how to mainstream gender in policies, programmes and structures of institutions and assess progress made in achieving gender equality. According to the ILO definition “…the Participatory Gender Audit is a tool that supports an organization’s commitment to gender equality by examining the extent to which equality is being institutionalized; helping to identify good practices in technical work; and pointing to effective and efficient ways of moving forward in mainstreaming gender in all work activities (ILO, A Manual for Gender Audit Facilitators: The ILO Participatory Gender Audit Methodology, ILO, 2007, 5.). The aim of a PGA is assessing the extent to which policies have been institutionalized at the level of the: 1. Organization 2. Work unit?? and 3. Individual. As a method for gender mainstreaming, gender audits help organizations identify and understand gender patterns within their composition, structures, processes, organizational culture and management of human resources, and in the design and delivery of policies and services. They also help assess the impact of organizational performance and its management on gender equality within the organization. Gender audits establish a baseline against which progress can be measured over time, identifying critical gender gaps and challenges, and making recommendations of how they can be addressed through improvements and innovations (InterAction, The Gender Audit Handbook: A tool for organisational self-assessment and transformation, 2010. Available at: http://www.rcrc-resilience-southeastasia.org/document/the-gender-audit-h...).
UN Women in collaboration with International Labour Organization (ILO) introduced a methodology of PGA to Georgia in 2012. Since then, UN Women has supported PGAs in a number of ministries/state agencies and has developed and gradually expanded a pool of national experts who have received training and certification of PGA facilitators in the International training Center (ITC) of ILO, Turin, Italy.
Within the framework of the GG4GEG project, UN Women plans to expand its work on PGA and intends to support the Prosecutor's Office of Georgia in undergoing PGA. The institution, along with its strategic importance has also expressed goodwill to undergo such audit that is a decisive factor for successful PGA outcomes.
The PGA will look whether in the Prosecutor's Office of Georgia internal practices and related support systems for gender mainstreaming are in place and effective and reinforce each other; it will monitor and assess the relative progress made in gender mainstreaming in the organization; will identify the critical gaps and challenges, in terms of effective gender mainstreaming and recommend ways for addressing them; and last but not least, document good practices towards the achievement of gender equality.
As per the key principles of the ILO PGA approach and to support the Prosecutor's Office of Georgia in undertaking PGA, UN Women intends to hire a total of three (3) national consultants from the roster of ITC-ILO certified group of facilitators of Participatory Gender Audit to perform work spelled out in the section below.
