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.
Harassment of any type is antithetical to the principles of the UN, and sexual harassment in particular undermines its credibility, denies the principles of non-discrimination on the basis of sex and gender, and degrades its staff. The Secretary-General and UN system leaders committed to a zero-tolerance approach to tackling sexual harassment, to strengthening victim-centered prevention and response efforts, and fostering a safe, equal and inclusive working environment across the UN system. To realize these commitments, the UN System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) established in November 2017 the CEB Task Force on Addressing Sexual Harassment within the organizations of the UN system (‘Task Force’) to drive joint action in key priority areas. One of the priority areas for the Task Force in 2020-2021 is to raise awareness of the UN system approach to addressing sexual harassment and promote instruments to combat discrimination and harassment among internal audiences.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the guidance of the designated representatives of the Co-leads of Workstream 3 “Learning and Communication of the CEB/HLCM Task Force on Addressing Sexual Harassment, the consultant shall design an effective and proactive communication strategy (“Strategy”) to advance the Task Force’s commitment to a harassment-free United Nations, targeting a broad range of internal audiences, including senior managers, subject matter experts, and field personnel.
The Communication Strategy should include:
Expected Key Deliverables:
The specific timeline for each deliverable will be agreed upon between the Co-leads of Workstream 3 and the consultant at the beginning stage of the assignment. The key deliverables include:
These outputs will have to consider the analysis of best practices in communicating about sexual harassment in the workplace, based on the experience of UN entities and other organizations.
