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.
Placing women’s rights at the centre of its efforts, UN Women is mandated to lead and coordinate United Nations’ system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming are translated into action. It is also mandated to provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The year 2020 marks a confluence of anniversaries that come at a crucial and challenging time for multilateralism and women’s human rights. As the global community marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women and adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995), (Beijing + 25), 40th anniversary of the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), 20 years since the ground-breaking UN Security Council resolution 1325 on Women and Peace and Security, 10 years anniversary of UN Women, and five years of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the moment is right to achieve irreversible and measurable progress towards this universal commitment to all women and girls, everywhere. At this time, equal enjoyment of the human rights of women and girls, in all their diversities, and in particular, those from marginalised communities, is at a greater risk given the additional repercussions of COVID-19. The time for transformative action is now!
To mark the occasion and build momentum for gender equality and women’s rights, UN Women will to take forward the Global Gender Equality Forum – Generation Equality, which will be a collective mobilisation moment, to galvanize all stakeholders to implement actions that remove the most egregious barriers to gender equality. The Forum will bring together civil society and the women and young people of the world, gender equality advocates from all walks of life, in a global public conversation on the urgent actions that need to be taken for the realisation of gender equality.
The key outcomes of the Forum will be feminist agenda-setting and the launch of ‘Action Coalitions’ for scaled-up and urgent action focused on critical issues to accelerate gender equality achievements. Action Coalitions are multi-stakeholder partnerships, involving civil society, governments, private sector, parliamentarians, trade unions, UN agencies and other stakeholders, who share a common goal to accelerate action on a critical thematic area of concern. These areas of concern will be determined in the lead up to the Forum in close collaboration with civil society and other stakeholders and based on the outcomes of the various review processes that are being undertaken for the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action.
The governance structure of the Generation Equality Campaign in India replicates the global model and includes a Civil Society Advisory Group and a Multi-Stakeholder Steering Committee Supported by a Secretariat.
Under the guidance and direct supervision of the UN Women Programme Analyst – Intergovernmental Processes and Women, Peace and Security, the Programme Associate is responsible for supporting with the overall planning, coordination and implementation of the Generation Equality Programme in India and will work in close collaboration and coordination with the UN Women India CO/the Regional Team and the HQ team on Generation Equality Campaign.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
