To mark International Women’s Day, UNOPS partnered with
Devex and other campaign partners –
Department for International Development UK (DFID),
JBS International and
Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) – in an online campaign called She Builds. The
campaign aimed to draw attention to the pressing challenges faced by women and girls around the world and some solutions to those challenges. The weekly themes were communities, economies, innovation and future. UNOPS supported the campaign on our social media channels -
Linkedin and we welcomed your participation via the
campaign discussion board or by using the hashtag
#SheBuilds on Twitter.

During March 2014, UNOPS participated in a
global conversation on the challenges that women and girls face
around the world as well as highlighting some solutions.
UNOPS is committed to playing its part, both in our workforce and in
our projects, to meet these challenges. Read what our former Executive Director had to say about the
need for renewed efforts and
