United Nations officials

In 1991, the Secretary-General continued his efforts to improve staff distribution with regard to nationality and gender, as well as to improve the status of women in the Secretariat. Although there was a slight rise in the percentage of women in senior-level positions, the situation was far from encouraging. Both the Economic and Social Council (resolution 1991/17) and the General Assembly (resolution 46/100) urged the Secretary-General to accord greater priority to the recruitment and promotion of women.
