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.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
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; the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development; human rights; as well as humanitarian action and peace and security.
“Implementing Norms, Changing Minds” is a regional programme under the UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia, which aims to support a reduction in discrimination and violence against women and girls in the Western Balkans - Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia - and Turkey. The programme is anchored in the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention), and also in alignment with European Union accession standards. The programme is funded by the European Commission under IPA II.
The regional programme supports the development of an enabling legislative and policy environment on eliminating violence against women and all forms of discrimination (Specific Objective 1); promotes favorable social norms and attitudes to prevent gender discrimination and violence against women (Specific Objective 2); and pursues empowering women and girls (including those from disadvantaged groups) who have experienced discrimination or violence to advocate for and use available, accessible, and quality services (Specific Objective 3).
Communications is a key component of UN Women’s work in the region and constitutes a vehicle for ensuring visibility for successful UN Women initiatives, results and programmes, including the regional programme “Implementing Norms, Changing Minds”, as well as for raising awareness about key issues on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Within this scope, UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia and the regional programme “Implementing Norms, Changing Minds” regularly develop impact stories, news materials, and other web-related information and web projects to be featured on the regional UN Women Europe and Central Asia website to showcase UN Women initiatives and impact on women’s and girl’s lives. The regional programme also produces e-newsletters throughout the year to inform key stakeholders working on ending violence against women of the programme’s initiatives and impact.
