Historique

The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (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. Placing women's rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides support to Member States’ efforts and priorities in meeting their gender equality goals and for building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
In line with UN Women Global Strategic Plan (2018-2021), and its Country Strategic Note (2019-2022), in Turkey UN Women works towards three overarching goals:
1) Women lead, participate in, and benefit equally from governance systems.
2) All women and girls live a life free from all forms of violence
3) Women and girls contribute to and have greater influence in building sustainable peace and resilience and benefit equally from the prevention of natural disasters and conflicts and humanitarian action.

Towards these goals, UN Women implements programmes and projects that aim to advance gender equality, improve women’s access to opportunities, rights and services in political, social and economic life and combat gender stereotypes, discrimination and violence, as required by international and national legal and policy commitments. UN Women collaborates with numerous partners – central and local level government authorities, civil society organizations, including women’s organizations and platforms, academia, private sector companies, other UN agencies. It commits itself to the Leaving No One Behind principle, by supporting targeted actions to remove the obstacles that marginalized and vulnerable groups of women face in accessing their rights and to promote them as agents of change.

In addition to the programmes, UN Women Turkey Office plays an active role in localization of campaigns and special events such as 16 Days of Activism, 8 March International Women’s Day, the Day of the Girl Child and other international UN days.
To support the effective implementation of the communication plans and activities of the programmes, UN Women Turkey Office seeks to embark on a series of targeted communications, visibility, publicity and advocacy interventions that would show-case the results of women in communities from Turkey and their impact on the lives of women, men and other community members as part of the leadership for change spirit. In addition, UN Women Turkey Office seeks to produce communications, advocacy and visibility materials on positive messaging and combatting against gender stereotypes and especially prejudices against the refugee population as well as on UN Women’s increasing visibility in the country.

As a part of UN Women’s work in Turkey there are also planned a series of events such as conferences, workshops, roundtables, study visits, trainings, for which visibility needs to be ensured and target audience reached. A prudent approach is to have on hand a long-term agreement with a graphic designer who can be brought on board to address visual communications needs on an ad hoc and as-needed basis.
In view of responding to the design needs of the office for the above mentioned purposes UN Women Turkey Office seeks to hire a graphic designer for providing timely and qualitative design services.
