Women’s Equal Employment Project in Zhejiang Province

The UN Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in China is calling for proposals to enhance Chinese women’s access to equal and fair employment.

The successful proposal will promote gender equal internal Corporate Social Responsibility practices among one or several manufacturing companies located in Zhejiang Province, with a focus on educating mid-level factory managers, and empowering predominately blue-collar women working in these companies.

The project, however, will not be exclusive to this group and will also include female and male workers at all levels of the company. It will ensure that the women’s voices are heard, their work conditions are fair, and that they have equal opportunities for promotion. The selected partner(s) will take a participatory approach and work closely with both men and women workers and their factory managers.

Applicants may include Annexes (supporting documents) such as organizational brochure, previous annual reports and audit reports.

Who can apply? Proposal can be submitted by an organization, or jointly by two or more organizations of any of the following categories:

-          Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), either registered in China or abroad.

The applying organizations must be legally registered. Organizations registered in China as for-profit but operating in reality as civil society organizations clearly dedicated to social development are eligible to apply.

What criteria will be used for selection of the proposal? The proposal will be selected on the basis of technical (80%) and financial (20%) assessments.  The technical assessment will review the following:

  1. Extent to which the proposal fulfills the requirements of the Call for Proposals (5%)
