The Language and Communications Programme is committed to creating a working environment that embraces equality, inclusivity and diversity, in support of the System-Wide Strategy on Gender Parity. To this end, the LCP co-created the Gender-Inclusive Guidelines in the six offical languages of the United Nations. Please use them and share your comments and suggestions in any of the six official UN languages through the contact form.


The Language Learning Services Unit (LLSU) can help you organize language or communication skills training or testing for staff at your locations.

We serve UN Secretariat learning managers and HR partners in charge of language training for staff in different offices, as well as peacekeeping and political missions. We can also support UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes through collaboration agreements. Learn more.
