|UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
The Policy Division develops and implements the UN Women programme of work on analysis, research and knowledge management that provides the evidence base for the advice and guidance UN Women provides to the intergovernmental process, the UN system, and to UN Women staff working at country and regional level. It undertakes issues-based research; analyzes data on country, regional or global trends; builds a knowledge base on policy commitments and their implementation; proposes evidence-based options for global policy, norms and standards and for UN Women’s flagship programmes; and contributes substantive inputs to policy advocacy and technical cooperation programmes.
The Economic Empowerment Section, through its EU-funded WE EMPOWER programme within the Policy Division, manages two main website, www.EmpowerWomen.org and welearn.unwomen.org;
EmpowerWomen.org, the global movement for women’s economic empowerment, engages since 2013 gender equality advocates and empowers women to achieve their full economic potential in more than 190 countries. Empower Women equips over a million women and men with resources, opportunities and a global platform to become change-makers and leaders in their communities. It is built on Sitecore.
WeLearn is currently a prototype global learning portal (build on Moodle) that will offer experiential, personalized and learning curricula to support women’s full participation in the economy. WeLearn will focus on equipping women with the skills needed for the jobs of the future (entrepreneurship and employment), including 21st century skills. It will provide access to customized, skills-based learning paths, a supportive community of learners and change-makers, and connections to real-world learning and employment opportunities that will empower women and girls and build a more gender inclusive society. WeLearn will be piloted in Indonesia in 2019.
In 2019, UN Women will scale up its use of the two platforms to host and disseminate capacity development materials in all areas of economic empowerment, including on the Women’s Empowerment Principles, entrepreneurship, climate resilient agriculture, migration and macroeconomics.
