Gender equality and women’s empowerment are human rights that lie at the heart of development and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. The UNDP Gender Team is at the forefront of UNDP's commitment to gender equality and women's empowerment. The Gender Team is part of the Bureau for Development Policy (BDP) of UNDP which provides policy advice and programme support to all of UNDP’s work. The Gender Team works to implement gender equality as a core objective of UNDP through (i) integrating gender equality concerns in all sectors including governance, poverty reduction and environment protection; and, (ii) dedicated projects that empower women and promote women’s rights and gender equality.
Online networking is an important way to connect UNDP staff globally and their experience and knowledge to inform their day-to-day business and it is a critical corporate service offered by the Knowledge Management Group. A new professional networking platform called “Teamworks” has been introduced to better connect and facilitate knowledge sharing within the organisation. The UNDP Gender Team is working to better seize opportunities created by this new platform that will accelerate progress on women’s empowerment and gender equality.
We are seeking to engage an intern who is passionate about women’s rights and about the potential opportunities offered by social networking and knowledge sharing.
