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.
To support member states in implementing the 2030 Agenda, UN Women’s Flagship Programme “Making Every Woman and Girl Count” (MEWGC) aims to affect a radical shift in the availability, accessibility and use of data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Programme envisions a multi-year and multi-country programme of work, supported by global and regional activities linking normative and technical work on gender statistics at the global level to the regional and national levels through three interlinked areas of work:
As part of UN Women’s role as the lead monitoring agency for a number of gender-related targets and indicators, one key outcome of MEWGC is the development of a gender data portal. The portal will be built around a database to consolidate gender indicators of the SDGs, as well as gender data across UN Women’s key thematic areas, and will be a key opportunity for UN Women’s positioning as a comprehensive gender data resource. The overarching goal of the gender data portal is to improve access to gender data to inform policy and advocacy, and to enhance UN Women’s standing in the international community as a knowledge hub on gender equality. The Data Analyst and Database coordinator is needed to help maintain the database, update the data where needed and support the outreach specialist in management of the gender data portal.

Provide maintenance and technical support to Portal and Database management:

Required Skills and Experience
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.
