UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 qualified Vietnamese firm/institute/organization for Survey Research on the Role and Impact of Women Leaders and Representatives in Elected Bodies.
Women’s leadership and management in the public sector is a matter of equity and fairness. Its basic premise is that half of the humanity must have an equal say about issues that matter to humankinds and the whole ecosystem. Women leaders are able to bring their unique experiences and perspectives into the decision-making process. Thus, decision-making must apply a gender lens—from socio-political issues to labor relations and economic participation—all of which require harnessing the full potential of every human being and workforce. Public policies and decisions can be all rounded when they reflect equal perspectives of both women and men alike. At the global level, gender equity has become an integral cross-cutting issue in the Sustainable Development Goals towards 2030. In particular, Goal 4 calls for inclusive and equitable quality education and the promotion of life-long learning opportunities for all women and men while Goal 5 demands for gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls.
To support Viet Nam’s aspiration for improved gender equity, since early 2000s, UNDP Viet Nam has been working with the National Assembly, Vietnamese Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Vietnam Women’s Union, Vietnam Women Academy, Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics to promote more women in leadership and management roles in elected bodies, party organizations and government agencies. The support was various forms and has been contributing to Viet Nam’s efforts in ensuring gender equality and promoting women empowerment.
The overall objective of the consultancy service is to contribute to promoting gender equity in politics, including women participation in politics and women in leadership roles in political, social and economic fields.
