Established in May 2021, UN-ANDI is a network of like-minded Asian staff members of the UN system who strive to promote a more diverse and inclusive culture and mindset within the UN.

Our mission is to work towards a culture in which inclusivity is integrated into all aspects of work and life in the Organization and diversity is the foundation of talent and productivity.

We believe that we all have the power to stop discrimination, eliminate oppression and bring an end to ignorance and indifference. We stand against racial prejudice and intolerant attitudes and actions around the world and within the Organization.

We strongly support all initiatives for promoting inclusion, justice, dignity, and combating racism and discrimination in all forms, inside and outside the United Nations. We believe that our perspectives will enrich the discussions on any organizational culture-related issues and facilitate the journey towards the paradigm that is engrained in the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

We focus on the following important areas:

Providing a safe space for discussing issues related to the organizational culture.

Enhancing our mutual understanding within the region while empowering each other.

Standing against any form of discrimination, racism, biases, and harassment, including sexual harassment and abuse of power and authority.

Identifying and addressing institutional barriers to achieve a more diverse and inclusive organizational culture and an enabling work environment.

Reflecting on the representation of staff from Asia in the organizations of the UN system.

Working towards raising awareness of the contributions and perspectives of the UN staff from Asia.

We invite all Asian staff and affiliated personnel within the UN system, who are committed to tackling inequality and creating a diverse and inclusive work environment, to join UN-ANDI by contacting us. The focal points are listed below.
