Gender Equality Strategy: UNDP Rwanda (2019-2022)
May 10, 2019
There is no single understanding of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The meaning, implication and reality of these terms can change throughout different languages, cultures, and time periods.
This Strategy is a product of UNDP Rwanda’s stance on gender equality and women’s empowerment. Through collaboration with government, national actors, local and foreign entities, and others, our Country Office (CO) continues to work toward the goals relevant to Rwandan women and men.
- In 2017, the UNDP CO achieved Gold Seal Certification for its extensive work in gender equality and women’s empowerment.
- According to the 2018 organigram, 49% of staff are women (26/53), including 50% at the level of senior management (1/2).
- UNDP Rwanda’s mission begins with the simple belief in the fundamental equality of all people.
