Internship assignments vary greatly in terms of content. They may have a country-specific, regional, sectoral, or thematic focus. Most interns support the design, implementation, and evaluation of UN Women projects and will learn about the work of gender and humanitarian action in an international environment. Internships are offered depending on the availability of meaningful assignments and the needs and capacity of units/offices to receive and supervise interns.

Duration of internship:

  • Internships range from a minimum of two months to a maximum of six months, according to the availability and academic requirements of the intern, as well as the needs of UN Women.
  • Assignments are available on a part-time and full-time basis throughout the year.

UN Women is the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.
