Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, UN Women will work 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 centre of all its efforts, UN Women will lead and coordinate United Nations System efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
Thematic clusters will bring together specialists supporting the normative and operational aspects of UN Women's mandate. Given UN Women's limited resources in its start-up phase, the initial set of thematic clusters will include: Elimination of Violence against Women; Peace and Security; Economic Empowerment and Governance/Participation/Leadership. The thematic section on Economic Empowerment will include issues such as: economic empowerment, macroeconomic policies, employment, sustainable development and land.
Under the supervision of the Economic Advisor, the incumbent of the post is responsible for undertaking gender analysis and research on priority areas and assuming substantive and administrative aspects of priority themes.

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.
