The United Nations Office in Vienna (UNOV) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) are proud to kick off the 2023 UNOV/UNODC Gender Award. Based on nominations received from UNOV/UNODC colleagues, the Award will recognize high-impact projects, policies, programmes, strategies and practices at Headquarters and in the Field Offices.
It is presented in two categories:
to recognize efforts in strengthening a diverse and inclusive workplace in the areas of talent management, workplace flexibility, professional and personal life integration, family friendly policies, security and safety, and standards of conduct as laid out in UN Women’s Enabling Environment Guidelines and Field Specific Enabling Environment Guidelines.
Nominations will be sent to a panel of independent jurors, who will review and create a shortlist of nominations that are eligible for the Award. The whole jury is presented on the Gender Award website below.
Shortlisted candidates and/or teams will be evaluated against a comprehensive set of established criteria:
Once the jury has created a shortlist, all UNOV/UNODC personnel will be invited to cast their vote and the winners will be awarded by the Director-General/Executive Director in the last quarter of 2023.
Apart from being recognised by the Director-General/Executive Director, the winners will also receive recognition on the UNODC gender website, HRMS Newsletter, and on UNODC social media channels.
We wish everyone the best of luck and thank you for your active participation!
