UN Gender Working Group
The Gender Working Group (GWG) is the UN inter-agency gender coordination mechanism empowered to influence the UN system to Deliver as One on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GEWE).

- Strengthening overall UN Country Team (UNCT) coordination and performance on GEWE.
- Engage with key UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) mechanisms to enhance quality of implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
- Support resource mobilization for identified Joint Programmes and other GEWE initiatives.
- Establish policy advocacy platforms.
- Participate in wider government, development and civil society partnerships for coordination, learning and information exchange.
Membership to the GWG is open to all members of the UNCT. It is currently chaired by UNESCO, co-chaired by UNDP who serve for a period of one year. UN Women is the permanent coordinating secretariat.
