Secretariat of the UN-Women Executive Board

As the interface with Member States, the Secretariat strives to ensure effective relationships between UN-Women and its Executive Board. Under the leadership of the President and with advice from the Bureau, the Secretariat assists in all aspects of the work of the Executive Board, including the organization of three formal sessions per year, informal consultations, briefings, bureau meetings and field visits.

Working in close cooperation with the UN Department of Conference Management, the Executive Board Secretariat ensures the timely production and translation of all UN-Women documentation presented to the Executive Board and maintains the repository of decisions of the Executive Board. It also provides members and observers with updated information by maintaining respective web-pages and the papersmart-portals.

The Secretariat coordinates closely with Board secretariats of UN Funds and Programmes, such as UNDP/UNFPA/UNOPS, UNICEF and WFP, to ensure harmonization of practices within the UN System.
