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.
The 2019 Independent Country Programme Evaluation for UNDP Malaysia, highlighted that, the current Country Programme integrated gender equality more prominently as a key result area of the programme and identified it as a strategy to enhance inclusive growth and sustainable development. Gender mainstreaming is increasingly getting traction with the stakeholders, despite uneven results across programmes, community and policy-making levels.
UNDP interventions under the IDG portfolio were generally successful in undertaking gender analysis through review of existing gender legislation and advocating for gender-disaggregated data. On the other hand, the SRD programme with its three streams of work, found it difficult to integrate gender beyond sex-disaggregated data and participation of women in some instances.
Overall, UNDP’s support for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment has been well received by the Government. But there is scope to enhance UNDP’s value proposition, seen as its ability to facilitate knowledge exchange with countries that have overcome policy advocacy and implementation challenges. UNDP is also expected to introduce innovative approaches.
On this front, UNDP Malaysia CO is planning to organize a UNDP Gender Retreat to bring together the entire team across all portfolios to discuss a gender mainstreaming framework within UNDP and explore integration of gender equality perspectives into all streams of development under the new Country Programme Document.
