|Overview : |
UNDP’s commitment to gender equality is in line with its focus on poverty alleviation, promoting sustainable human development, and is intrinsic to its core values of integrity and respect for diversity. UNDP strives to ensure that gender equality is fully integrated into every aspect of its work and aims to achieve gender parity among its workforce, creating and maintaining a working environment where men, women and persons of all gender identities have equal opportunities to contribute to UNDP’s mission and advance within the organization in an environment of inclusiveness, dignity and respect.
To develop the capacity to undertake work on gender equality, UNDP has been implementing a mandatory online training course: “Gender Journey”. The Gender Journey course is an exploration of the meaning of gender equality, guiding UNDP personnel to understand the connection between gender equality and UNDP’s goals, and uncover ways to integrate the learnings in their work and their lives. The Gender Journey is an awareness course mandatory for all UNDP staff.
Several institutional changes have occurred since the last update of the Gender Journey course. The United Nations has released the System-Wide Strategy on Gender Parity that aims to transform organizational culture and create a working environment that embraces equality, eliminates biases and discrimination, and is inclusive of all personnel. UNDP will soon be releasing a new Gender Equality Strategy for 2018-2021. The online Gender Journeys Course should include these new UNDP policies and practices for achieving gender equality results at the global, regional and Country Offices (COs) level.
UNDP is recruiting a consultant who will be charged with reviewing the existing course and updating/drafting content with the latest discussion and research from internal and external sources. The consultant will be tasked with developing eLearning materials and scripts of the course. The eLearning consultant will be responsible for the preparatory work to develop a user-friendly eLearning Gender Journey course.
The consultant will work under the oversight of the Gender Team in the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) and Engagement Unit in the Office of Human Resources (OHR)/Bureau for Management Services (BMS) for the preparatory work to develop a user-friendly online course on gender (35 to 45 working days, from 1st October to 30 November aprox.)
