WUTMI is re-opening the position of Legislation and Policy (L&P) Coordinator under the iBRAVE project. The new L&P Coordinator will attend trainings to build capacity to successfully implement the project.
One of WUTMI’s visions is the elimination of domestic violence/interpersonal violence (DV/IPV) in the Marshall Islands. WUTMI submitted its proposal “Initiative for a Better Response to Address Violence Everywhere” (iBRAVE) to the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women to address violence against women in the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI).
WUTMI’s iBRAVE proposal was selected and awarded funds to implement iBRAVE in the RMI.
Through iBRAVE, WUTMI will work to accomplish three of the five key national outcomes outlined in the Secretary-General’s UNiTE Campaign 2008-2015.
1) increased public awareness about the high prevalence of domestic violence and the need to reduce and prevent it;
2) the adoption and implementation of multi-sectoral national action plans; and
3) the adoption and enforcement of national laws to address and punish domestic violence.
iBRAVE includes an awareness and education component for 100 first responders (60 police, 40 health care providers), and the development and implementation of response protocols for their respective fields.
Duties and responsibilities include:
- Facilitating educational workshops with government and community stakeholders, including the members of the Resources Development Committee, and the Women in Development Office (WDO) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs;
- Initiating consultations with the relevant stakeholders for the purpose of collaborating to submit draft legislation that will codify a national policy on violence against women;
- Oversee the drafting and submission of prepared legislation;
- Conducting workshops throughout the project to increase the awareness of first responders and the need for them (and their Ministries) to develop and implement response protocols for each sector (medical and legal);
- Conducting training workshops on the implementation of the protocols as they are developed and sanctioned by the Ministries and the Attorney General’s Office.
Qualifications: B.A. or B.S. degree or higher from an accredited college or university. Preferably will have previous knowledge and/or experience working in this area.
References from previous employers and/or teachers will be required.
For interested applicants, submit application, cover letter, and resume to the WUTMI office or email. An application can be picked up at the WUTMI office located on the 2nd floor of the Payless Supermarket complex in Delap.
