Background and objectives
The Gender Equality Seal Award for Public Institutions (GEA) is a innovative gender equality seal recognition and global programme for public institutions that commit to advance gender equality and women's empowerment in their policies and programmes, and their work place. We are looking for Online Volunteers to proofread, edit and ensure consistency of the tools in the GEA Toolbox and the GEA platform texts, which have been already translated by other UNVs. The Tool Box is composed of 25 different tools (most of them are few pages long), in Word, ppt and excel, while the platform content is mostly short paragraphs. The total estimated extension of the proofreading/editing would be about 150 word pages. We need a volunteer who is committed, precise and looking forward also to learn about how to advance gender equality. The proofreaders/editors will need to bear in mind that these tools will be used globally, so the language in each case must be as universal as possible.

Translation and interpretation
The Gender Equality Seal Award for Public Institutions (GEA) is a methodological proposal to support and acknowledge the efforts of public institutions towards achieving substantive equality between women and men within the framework of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The Gender Equality Seal Award for Public Institutions proposes to accelerate gender mainstreaming in SDGs implementation, based on a comprehensive process of improving and transformation of key internal and external aspects of the institutional architecture, policies and procedures. In-house, the GEA intents to integrate gender equality principles and practices in the institutional organization and culture which are the core of the organizations’ operations. Externally, the GEA aims to promote public institutions to analyze and mainstream gender into the public policies and programmes, to improve their approaches and their potential impact on women’s lives and empowerment and gender equality.
Volunteers: 1 needed
11-20 hours per week / 6 weeks
We are looking for a UNV with previous proofreading experience, very high quality writing and editing, ensuring consistency and clarity throughout the whole tool box and platform content. We will set together a work plan with specific timeframes according your availability and our needs. We will keep tight contact to ensure you can consult as on any question you might have.
