This project aims to increase gender balance across United Nations (UN) operations. Based on the findings of the Global Study on Implementation of Security Council resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325), it is critical that dedicated technical capacity on gender equality and women’s participation and leadership is placed at the center of current UN peace and security reform efforts. This project supports the placement of a Senior Gender Advisor from UN Women to the Executive Office of the Secretary General. The Senior Gender Advisor‘s role is to inform processes of planning, analysis and policy at the highest levels of the UN to promote the integration of gender equality within the organization and its operations.
