A new Culture and Diversity team is being established in the Office of the Executive Director, in UNICEF's headquarters in New York.

The new team will oversee, monitor, coordinate, and support the implementation of all of UNICEF’s efforts to become a more diverse, equitable and inclusive organization - both in its programming, advocacy, and partnerships for children, as well as for its own workforce, and its internal operations.

For every child, inclusion

UNICEF is at an important turning point, with the adoption of the recommendations from its internal Task Team on Anti-Racism and Discrimination and its new Strategic Plan 2022-25. Both of these milestones position UNICEF to be a greater champion of anti-racism and non-discrimination in all its forms, whether based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, regional origin, disability status, sexual orientation, etc. As an organization that champions the human rights based approach to programming for all children, with a focus on equity and reaching every child, UNICEF must also strive to apply the same principles of equity, non-discrimination and inclusion for its own employees.

Geeta Narayan, our Principal Adviser on Organizational Culture, presented the new Culture and Diversity team in a Live Event on LinkedIn on Thursday, January 13, 2022.

Watch the recording, and learn more about the new team and how we're transforming UNICEF into a more diverse and inclusive Organization.
