The focus of the discussion will be how civilian women contribute to UN Peacekeeping. Kristina and Rachel will share their personal experience in UN Peacekeeping Missions --what attracted them to the United Nations, their successes and challenges, their career paths, and how they balance their personal and professional lives.

Join the live cast on Wednesday 8 March, at 12:30 (NY time) at UN peacekeeping

Kristina and Rachel are going to give you honest insights of both pros and cons of how it is to select a career like the one they have done. Thew will share the immense satisfaction and reward that comes with helping protect civilians caught up in conflict and the realities of living and working in post-conflict countries.

The discussion will both be held in French and English to showcase the importance of being multilingual in the UN! Indeed, UN Peacekeeping Missions in Francophone countries such as Mali (MINUSMA), the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO), and the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) are currently recruiting.

Bilingual women have a clear advantage in the recruitment process, and applicants fluent in English and Arabic are also in high demand!
