For an equal gender world:  increase women in senior roles worldwide

 

The need for gender equality in the workplace has been recognised as a critical issue for decades. However, women still remain under-represented within many organisations worldwide, and strikingly so at the most senior levels.

Global Careers, the leading provider of Online Careers Fairs has teamed up once again with major international organisations such as UNOPS and CTBTO for the 7th edition of the Global Careers for Women in International Organisations’ recruitment Event on the 12 March 2020.

This unique career event is a great opportunity for senior professional women around the world to speak with leading international employers about their next career move. Candidates and recruiters will be able to engage live 1-2-1  and discuss career opportunities from the comfort of their home, office, smartphone or tablet.

UNHCR, UNOPS and CTBTO have already confirmed their participation and the full list of participating organisations will be released shortly. Stay tuned!!

UNOPS leadership has made gender parity a priority for the organization. This strategy reconfirms the organization’s commitment to targets beyond the initial, Phase One targets set by the Secretary General’s UN System-Wide Gender Parity Strategy. UNOPS is committed to exceeding the UN System-Wide targets by not only meeting the targets for parity amongst International Staff members, but it is also committed to achieving parity amongst all its international personnel regardless of contract type. Additionally, UNOPS is committing to gender parity across the entire, global UNOPS workforce including both national and international personnel.

For over a century, International Women’s Day has been observed on 8 March every year and serves as a reminder that many women around the world continue to be denied equal treatment and equal representation.

As a security-related organization with a strong technical focus, the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) is active in traditionally male-dominated fields.

While the CTBTO has yet to reach the aspired 50 per cent female representation across all staff levels, there has been slow but steady progress over recent years towards that goal.

The CTBTO has now reached female representation of 43 per cent overall, and 35 per cent in the professional and higher positions.

CTBTO Executive Secretary Lassina Zerbo highlighted women’s contribution to the nuclear test-ban: “Women were and are the driving force behind the ban on nuclear testing. The civil society movements that pushed for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) in 1996 and its predecessors were to a large extent grounded in women’s initiatives.

 

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, takes the lead in protecting people forced to flee wars and persecution around the world, providing life-saving aid including shelter, food and water to ensure their basic safety, rights and dignity. With 16,803 women and men working in 134​ countries, we work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of 70.8 million forcibly displaced people worldwide.

Our dedicated and professional staff work around the clock in roles including legal protection, community services, public affairs, health and more. Despite the challenges they can face, our staff are proud to work for UNHCR and determined to make a positive impact.
