In 2019, OHCHR launched its first ever LGBTI Fellowship Programme, developed under the strategic direction and commitment of the Office to have a more gender-diverse and inclusive workforce.
The fellowship is intended to be a capacity-building initiative. The Fellow has the chance to work hands-on within the United Nations human rights system, and to transfer this knowledge once back in their home country.
In 2019, a Trans Fellow joined the Office for 7 months. You can learn more about their experience here [link to forthcoming evaluation of the Fellowship to be provided at a later date].
