Introduce proactive measures to enhance the proportions of women and/or men as required to achieve enhanced gender equality within the civil service.
Modern Human Resource (HR) practices are at the core of unlocking the potential of Myanmar’s civil service and a tool to improve gender equality. In partnership with UNDP Leadership, Effectiveness, Adaptability and Professionalism (LEAP) project and in consultation with government agencies, the UCSB proposed three policy tools that improve HR Management and the position of women.
(1) The Myanmar Civil Service Competency Framework outlines the set of competencies that are required. By increasing transparency, it reduces gender-biases in recruitment and promotion.
(2) The Myanmar Civil Service Performance Management System and New Performance Evaluation Form make performance assessments transparent and merit-based ensuring women’s and men’s performance is fairly assessed against their contribution to achieve goals set by their organization.
(3) The Senior and Executives Leadership Development Scheme is designed to support women and men equally participating at the highest levels of decision-making in Myanmar’s civil service.
