The United Nations and its multiple agencies are probably one of the first careers you think of when aspiring to a career in foreign policy. From Melissa Fleming of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to Eliane Luthi of UNICEF, we've interviewed women on how they joined these prestigious organisations, their advice to get in and their take on the UN mission and future. No matter your field of expertise, whether finance, health, human rights or pure diplomacy, there will be a job at the UN bound to be of interest. The UN is currently encouraging applications from female candidates.
