JOB DESCRIPTION

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.

 

Background
UN Women, the United Nations entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women actively advocates and promotes the interests of women and girls at a global level. UN Women assists UN member states in establishing international norms and standards to achieve gender
equality, collaborates with governments and civil society in the development of laws, policy approaches, programs, and services necessary to implement these standards.

UN Women actively contributes to the equal participation of women in all areas of life, focusing on five priority areas: enhancing the leadership role of women and expanding their participation in society; eradicating violence against women; engaging women in the full spectrum of peace
and security issues; expanding women’s economic opportunities; and ensuring a central role for gender equality in national development planning and budgeting processes. UN Women also coordinates efforts to promote gender equality across the entire UN system.
In April 2022, by decree of the head of state, the updated Concept of Family and Gender Policy up to 2030 with an Implementation Plan was adopted. The Concept is a multisectoral program document that ensures a comprehensive approach to integrating the principle of equality
between women and men into program documents in all areas and at all levels of decisionmaking and implementation.

UN Women in Kazakhstan, together with the National Commission on Women’s Affairs and Family-Demographic Policy at the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan (hereinafter referred to as the National Commission), with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Kazakhstan (hereinafter referred to as the Ministry), is implementing a project within the linked grant “Supporting Kazakhstan in the implementation of the Concept of Family and Gender Policy, in terms of ensuring gender equality and expanding the rights and opportunities of all women and girls in Kazakhstan and overcoming the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis” for the period 2022-2024.
