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 for a fully productive society; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
The Strategic Partnerships Division (SPD) works to strengthen UN Women’s position as a partner of choice for gender equality and the empowerment of women (GEWE) among governments and private sector actors around the world. The Division does this by positioning GEWE in the intergovernmental and multilateral fora, and engaging with governments and private sector corporations, foundations and individuals as policy, programme and resource partners. A key premise for SPD is that engagement with partners should be holistic based on multiple aspects of partnerships, including policy advocacy and resource mobilization.
SPD convenes a number of partnerships with private sector partners and seeks to ensure that these are complementary and synergistic. The Multi-Stakeholder Private Partnership Section brings these together, leveraging the range of UN Women’s partnership vehicles and its National Committees to achieve maximum impact for gender equality. It is the driver of UN Women’s corporate engagement with the private sector both in terms of substantive partnership and resource mobilization.
Under the supervision of the Director of SPD, the Chief, Multi-Stakeholder Private Partnership will coordinate several teams working on clearly defined engagement initiatives and platforms with the private sector. The Chief manages and leads these teams and is responsible for ensuring that UN Women initiates and sustains high impact partnerships in a coherent manner such that its partnerships are holistic and connected and through their success grow partnerships, results and resource mobilisation. The Chief will also oversee private sector relations and the overall partnership portfolio with corporations, foundations, and private individuals, including through the network of National Committees and through them efforts related to individual and digital giving. The Chief further oversees UN Women’s efforts around the Women’s Empowerment Principles and their integration through the various partnership initiatives UN Women undertakes.
