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.
In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted unanimously the Resolution 70/1 Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Gender equality and women’s empowerment is at the heart of the agenda, as numerous goals and targets address structural barriers to achieve equal rights and opportunities between women and men, girls and boys.
As a global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide, and to engage with diverse constituencies to achieve gender equality.
The Unstereotype Alliance
The Unstereotype Alliance is a thought and action platform convened by UN Women that brings together a powerful global coalition of leaders from the private sector behind the common goal of eliminating gender bias and harmful gender stereotypes from their advertising.
The Unstereotype Alliance is focused on empowering women in all their diversity (race, class, age, ability, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, language, education, etc.) and addressing harmful masculinities to help create a gender equal world. The Alliance provides a platform that enables the private sector to use their advertising and media as a powerful force for good, driving positive change by depicting women and men as empowered actors with progressive, intelligent and multi-dimensional personalities.
Recognizing the power of partnerships to accelerate progress, this industry-led initiative convened by UN Women has been embraced by businesses and organizations who have been champions of addressing gender bias in the industry. It aims to unite leaders across business, technology and creative industries to tackle the widespread prevalence of stereotypes that are often perpetuated through advertising and content.
To create a practical and enforceable way to achieve real global change, the Unstereotype Alliance has implemented a national expansion programme, which aims to activate the Unstereotype Alliance mission and platform at a local and country level. Each national chapter appoints a National Consultant to facilitate the Unstereotype Alliance National Chapter, under the supervision of national UN Women representatives.
The Unstereotype Alliance has established a National Chapter in the United Kingdom with the participation of Members and Allies from the UK advertising industry. UN Women, as convenors of the Unstereotype Alliance, seeks the services of a National Consultant to support, coordinate and manage partnerships and outreach with a range of partners, stakeholders and advertising industry bodies to deliver on the strategic priorities of the Unstereotype Alliance UK National Chapter.
The National Consultant will support in coordinating engagement with advertising companies, agency networks and other relevant networks/organisations as Members and Allies of the National Chapter. They will coordinate relationships with local constituencies including chambers of commerce, industry federations, and government departments/ministries as required, providing regular reports and updates to Unstereotype Alliance local and HQ. They will take guidance and report back to the Unstereotype Alliance Secretariat at HQ, and will cooperate closely with UN Women’s UK National Committee colleagues to ensure a streamlined and consistent front to UN Women’s partnerships in the United Kingdom.
