About the Gender Equality Seal
The UNDP Gender Equality Seal is a corporate certification process that recognizes the good performance of UNDP Country Offices in delivering transformational gender equality results. It looks at how interactions between different domains of gender mainstreaming can catalyse results both in the organization and development results. It generates a comprehensive snapshot of the competence, credibility and contribution of the concerned office to promoting gender equality.
The Seal is a global brand that aims to be recognized by government counterparts, civil society partners, donors and the public as a guarantee of UNDP’s commitment, expertise and effectiveness in protecting and advancing women's rights and gender equality.
Adoption of the UNDP Gender Equality Seal
Participation of UNDP Indonesia in the Gender Equality Seal Certification provides participatory learning for UNDP in ensuring gender transformative changes, not only in programming but also in fostering an inclusive working environment, including leadership for gender equality and gender capacities of staffs. In 2016, UNDP Indonesia was certified Silver from the corporate Gender Equality Seal Certification programme. This Gender Seal process enabled teams to collectively and systematically build the foundation for a gender transformative environment in the Country Office, and the areas in which UNDP works. As a result, this strategy was set in motion. This guides UNDP Indonesia 2017-2020 Gender Strategy and Action Plan.
