Job Description

Background
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are core principles at UNDP:  we value diversity as an expression of the multiplicity of nations and cultures where we operate, we foster inclusion as a way of ensuring all personnel are empowered to contribute to our mission, and we ensure equity and fairness in all our actions. Taking a ‘leave no one behind’ approach to our diversity efforts means increasing representation of underserved populations. People who identify as belonging to marginalized or excluded populations are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more about working at UNDP including our values and inspiring stories.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

To effectively address the development challenges of the 21st century, it is not enough to think about designing isolated solutions; new strategies are required to understand how problems develop and evolve, as well as new approaches to identify sets of solutions that can address specific problems. and at the same time contribute to generating systemic change. 

With this in mind, UNDP created the Acceleration Laboratories, present in UNDP offices in 91 countries, including Mexico. The Labs are part of an effort to inject innovation into the DNA of the organization through the incorporation of new skills and approaches; and improve the organization’s ability to learn accelerated and networked, to close the gap between the scale of problems and our ability to solve them. 

The UNDP Acceleration Laboratory in Mexico (AccLab) provides a set of strategic services to the areas of UNDP and its allies to more effectively address complex problems. These services are:

  • Sensemaking: The ability to identify the development challenges that are relevant to address in a complex and dynamic environment.
  • Collective intelligence: New ways of knowing the pulse of what is happening in the territory.
  • Solution mapping: Diversify the way solutions are designed, starting from identifying the innovations that people in the territory have developed from their own experience to deal with the challenges they face.
  • Experiment portfolio: Design and assemble a portfolio of experiments capable of generating agile learning about actionable solutions.
