Senior Manager, Gender, FP2030
Family Planning 2030 (FP2030) is a global partnership of governments, civil society, multilateral organizations, donors, private sector partners, and researchers committed to supporting the rights of women and girls who wish to use contraception. Our vision is a future where women and girls everywhere have the freedom and ability to lead healthy lives, make their own informed decisions about using contraception and having children, and participate as equals in society and its development.
The FP2030 Support Network consists of five hosted regional hubs: North, West and Central Africa; East and Southern Africa; Asia and the Pacific; and Latin America and the Caribbean, and North America and Europe. The FP2030 Support Network is led by an Executive Director, supported by an Executive Directorate team, who reports to the Governing Board. Each Regional Hub is headed by a Managing Director supported by a small team and hosted by an NGO within the region.
The FP2030 Support Network is hosted by the United Nations Foundation (UNF), which hosts the North America and Europe Hub (NAE) and the Executive Directorate team.
The Senior Manager, Gender will direct gender mainstreaming for the FP2030 Support Network, including both strategic and technical advice for gender integration across the FP2030 Support Network and guidance for policies and processes that further the organization’s commitment to gender equality.
FP2030 seeks to build on the strengths of FP2020 while improving attention to equity, inclusion, and mutual accountability, among other principles. An FP2030 gender strategy is essential to this next phase, to underscore the centrality of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) to the gender equality agenda, integrate a gender lens within its own structure and processes, and encourage and equip commitment makers to improve their approaches to gender integration to advance both SRHR outcomes and gender equality. This strategy aligns FP2030 with global trends supporting gender equality, and helps stakeholders apply existing gender expertise and acquired knowledge to new investments in FP, ultimately boosting their impact.
FP2030’s gender strategy is grounded in three strategic priorities:
1. Reframing FP2030’s work toward a focus on reproductive power;
2. Engaging local women-led and youth-led organizations explicitly working toward gender equality and promoting regional gender experts; and
3. Channeling resources into gender transformative programming.
The Senior Manager, Gender will serve as a focal point for facilitating the integration of gender considerations into commitments, programs, budgets, training, monitoring and evaluation, and other learning activities and a resource person for FP2030 Support Network on gender equality, gender mainstreaming and women empowerment, consistent with operationalizing a rights-based approach to family planning and in support of the universal health coverage agenda. They will also work in close collaboration with FP2030 directors and external partners to support and coordinate FP2030’s engagement in the Generation Equality platform.
