The EMERGE Programme blends individual, pair and group activities over a 9-month period. Raising self-awareness on individual strengths, career development needs and biases provide the starting point of this development journey. Two workshops, offered at the beginning and at mid­term of the programme, are intended for skills building and for creating  a network amongst the participants. In between workshops individual coaching sessions provide an opportunity to continue working towards development goals and address challenges. During a final stage, participants are guided by a mentor from within their own entity in implementing their individual development plan.


The Programme is an example of inter-agency collaboration explicitly aligned to the goal of reaching gender parity in the UN system.
