United Nations staff

In 1990, the Secretary-General pursued efforts to improve United Nations Secretariat staff composition in the areas of nationality and gender. The General Assembly requested him to continue to do so, ensuring broad and equitable geographical distribution of staff and giving paramount consideration to securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity. The Assembly, as well as the Economic and Social Council, also requested him to take measures to increase the number of women employed throughout the United Nations system in posts subject to geographical distribution, thereby ensuring an overall participation rate of 30 per cent by the end of 1990, and to the extent possible to increase the number of women in senior policy-level and decision-making posts, so as to achieve an overall participation rate of 35 per cent by 1995.
