In celebration of the 10th anniversary of UN Women, we are inviting former colleagues who have worked with UN Women or its predecessor entities (UNIFEM, OSAGI, DAW, and INSTRAW) across the globe to write to

if they have an interest in joining the UN Women Alumni Association.

The Alumni Association helps to connect UN Women alumni to the organization’s work, its current staff, and each other. It is a forum where former colleagues from UN Women and its predecessor entities can unite and collaborate globally, renew their contact with each other and with UN Women, and help promote UN Women’s mission towards the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.

UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka launched the Alumni Association on 23 March 2021.

Our mission

  • Connect alumni to opportunities to support the cause of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
  • Maintain and strengthen ties between alumni and UN Women to deliver together on the gender equality and women’s rights agenda.
