[Closed] GPAP is seeking a gender and inclusion consultant

Blog   September 24, 2020

Update 20 October 2020: This vacancy is now closed to new applications. We thank you again for your time and interest.

Work with us to model a “gold standard” approach to mainstreaming gender and inclusion across the many different components of plastic pollution action.

Women, Indigenous Peoples and many traditionally marginalized communities play a leading role in combatting plastic waste and pollution worldwide. Recognizing and uplifting their work is key to advancing global progress towards a plastic pollution-free world, as well as many Sustainable Development Goals such as marine biodiversity, public health, water and sanitation, and sustainable communities.

At the same time, the unique challenges and needs of women and diverse communities, many of whom derive their livelihoods from waste collection in the informal labor sector, must also be taken into consideration as governments, businesses and civil society work together to champion the shift to a circular economy.

GPAP and its members have identified a critical knowledge gap globally in how gender equity and inclusion principles can and must be put into practice by actors across the plastics value chain, as well as integrated into programmes and strategies to tackle plastic waste and pollution.

As such, GPAP is seeking to retain the services of a gender and inclusion advisor who can work closely with its global secretariat in Geneva and its national gender advisors in Indonesia, Ghana and Viet Nam in modelling a “gold standard” approach to mainstreaming gender and inclusion across the many different components of plastic pollution action.
