CARE has committed itself to building a common and consistent identity across the region, in a way that is consistent with CARE's global vision and mission, in a region that represents a nexus for the struggle for girls' and women's rights. In seeking to be the leading international organization that 'is committed to ensuring the rights of girls and women in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region', CARE also acknowledges the need to work with regional stakeholders and to hold ourselves and others accountable to (and to be held to account by) the impact groups with whom we work. The MENA region is the most conservative region globally with respect to women's and girl's rights. In the 2012 Global Gender Gap Report, not only does the region rank the lowest, but it also shows the least progress in the last 10 years. As such, CARE's work on these issues, even in such complex and often volatile contexts that characterize the region, must also serve the organization's global commitment to gender equality and women's empowerment. In recognition of challenges and opportunities associated with humanitarian context and long term programming in the region, and as a result of recommendations made developed in the MENA regional strategy, it has been agreed that CARE will develop three programmatic theme teams within the MENA Region, one of which is centered on women's rights. The Senior Advisor, GJP/CM will frame and guide CARE's social and gender justice agenda throughout the MENA region as well as lead the implementation of the MENA vision and strategy in order to achieve the MENA region's strategic objectives by 2017. Responsibilities and Tasks: Develops knowledge, learning and sharing capacity at regional level that reflects CARE's commitment to the MENA Strategy. Builds strategic partnerships and bridges across the region/ convening spaces for dialogue. Leads regional advocacy efforts on issues of gender equality (GE) and women's empowerment (WE), as relevant to MENA, and contributes to CARE's Global Advocacy Agenda. Developing CARE's Regional Program Experience base. Perform other duties as assigned. QUALIFICATIONS: Bachelor's Degree in social sciences such as International development, foreign policy, public health, gender studies.
