5 takeaways from the webinar:

  1. UNESCO has multiple mandates in Education, Natural Science, Social and Human Sciences, Culture, Communication and Information. UNESCO’s Headquarter is in Paris and it has 53 Field Offices and 9 Institutes around the world.

  2. With its Science sector, the International Centre for Theoretical Physics or the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, UNESCO is active in various scientific areas (Water, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, Biosphere…).

  3. Gender Equality, as one of UNESCO’s two global priorities, is mainstreamed across all of its programmes. The Organization produced key findings on gender gaps in STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

  4. Through projects and initiatives, UNESCO is working with various stakeholders to measure and reduce the gender gaps in STEM. The Organization also actively promotes and recognizes women in science.

  5. You can check UNESCO’s Talent programmes (for young professionals), Career and Temporary Opportunities on the career page.
