As part of the Gender Equality in Public Administration – Myanmar Case Study launch, the UNDP also issued a call for “Bright Ideas” to advance gender equality in the civil service. As the Covid-19 movement restrictions moved the entire event totally online, UNDP conducted a Zoom poll to select the most popular ideas from the top 10 identified by UNDP from all the entries.
The top two ideas were a Strategy for Work and Life balance in the civil service and also one to make the civil service an inclusive workplace for women and men, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. We would like to announce on our social media that the winner was the Union Civil Service Board and U Than Htike, and second was Khun Gabriel. Congratulations to all the winners
We will be taking all the ideas forward in our Civil Service gender equality and diversity strategy and congratulate all those who took part in the competition.
