A Health and Wellbeing Strategy was developed for UN City in 2019, to aspire to a healthy workplace. To further the work to ensure a good workplace, UN City plans to develop a comprehensive strategy with an action plan to ensure gender equality and inclusion, and to address discrimination and racism in the workplace. This strategy will be called UN City Inclusive Workplace Strategy, with the subtitle ‘Ensuring a safe, inclusive, and gender equal workplace free of racism, discrimination, and harassment’. The Inclusive Workplace Strategy (IWS) will complement and not overlap agency specific strategies, but rather address the working life in UN City related to issues that applies to all staff no matter UN agency affiliation and contracting arrangements. It will form an addition to the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
The strategy will include concrete proposed actions for improvement on issues that UN City staff prioritise. This workplan will guide the Operations Management Team on matters of priority going forward including but not limited to allocation of workplace-related funds, and it will allow the UN Country Team to hold itself accountable for delivering on key priority issues of importance across the UN family.
Under the overall guidance of the UN City Common Services management, and in close collaboration with the IWC Reference Group (to be established for this purpose), a UN City Common Services will hire a consultant for a total of 35 working days over a period of 3 months starting on 15 October.
