UN Women National Individual Consultant

National Individual Consultant -To Plan and Implement a Media Retreat on Gender and Devp. - UN Women
UN Women’s Sub regional Office for East & Horn of Africa is embarking on an ambitious effort to create a new generation of innovative, inclusive leaders and female entrepreneurs. 

While Africa’s development and economic integration continues apace, research indicates that unleashing the economic potential of the continent’s women would yield even greater results for development.
There is mounting evidence that economic growth rates in Africa are being held back by the gap in opportunities available to the genders. As recently as March 2012, a study found that annually, the gender gap in labour participation and education creates economic losses for Africa of over $159 billion, and possibly as high as $255 billion.
In an effort to redress this, UN Women’s goal is to unleash the potential of Africa’s women, for the benefit of all, by promoting female leadership in business, politics and the non-government sector, and by advocating publicly in support of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Given the key role played by the media in raising issues for public debate and discussion and mobilizing public opinion in favour of inclusivity and progress, UN Women sees East African media houses, journalists and new media practitioners as vital partners in this endeavor. 

Therefore, UN Women wishes to engage the services of a skilled and well-established consultant to ensure
the successful implementation of a one and a half day media retreat, to be held on 13 and 14 December 2012.
