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.


Considered the largest gathering of advocates for gender equality, the 1995 Beijing Action Program was adopted by 189 governments who committed to taking bold and strategic actions in 12 critical areas of development. It envisioned a world where every woman and girl can exercise their freedoms and choices and fully understand all their rights. In 2020, 25 years after the Beijing Action Program was established, it’s evident that, despite some progress, real changes have been frustratingly slow for the majority of women and girls worldwide.

At the forefront of government and civil society mobilization initiatives to engage and uphold their commitments through the Beijing Action Program for the entire society, UN Women is determined to make gender equality a lived reality for all women and girls. Therefore, it invites the nations of the world to assess progress in gender equality and launches a comprehensive campaign under the theme: “Generation Equality: for women’s rights and an equal future.” This innovative, multigenerational campaign calls for pay equity, equal sharing of unpaid care and domestic work, an end to sexual harassment and all forms of violence against women and girls, healthcare services that meet their needs, and equal participation in political life and decision-making in all areas of life.

In March 2021, the Generation Equality Forum was held, generating financial commitments and multiple political and programmatic pledges. The bold five-year action program aimed at achieving irreversible progress in gender equality resulting from this forum will be led by six action coalitions that will deliver on the promise of the Beijing Action Program and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Founded on a human rights-based approach and global partnerships, the selected themes for the action coalitions are: (i) Gender-based violence; (ii) Economic justice and economic rights; (iii) Bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights; (iv) Women’s action for climate justice; (v) Technology and innovation for gender equality; and (vi) Feminist movements and leadership.

In Côte d’Ivoire, the Generation Equality Campaign was launched on June 11, 2021, by the Government in the presence of all technical and financial partners of the country. As recommended by the campaign, young people in Côte d’Ivoire have been placed at the heart of the national mobilization for gender equality. In continuation of this campaign, a “Generation Equality” university caravan was organized to mobilize young people around the vision and promoted Action Coalitions of this campaign, designating Gender Clubs as the main carriers at the national level.
