The Division for Multilateral Diplomacy of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is pleased to announce its upcoming Online Certificate on Essential Professional Skills taking place this fall. The online certificate will consist of a series of e-workshops targeted to working professionals and individuals seeking to improve their professional skills. The online certificate aims to reinforce individuals’ transferable professional skills, especially in a time where flexibility and adaptability are key.

 The four topics covered will be:

  • Negotiation Skills (15-17 September)
  • Stakeholder Engagement (29 September-1 October)
  • Leadership and Team Mobilization (13-15 October)
  • Cross-Cultural Communication (27-29 October)

All e-workshops will take place at 13.00-17.00 CET.

Tailor made e-workshops for organisations are also available upon request, please contact for more information.

The online certificate will consist of four e-workshops facilitated by experts on the selected topics and will take place using the platform Zoom. The e-workshops are designed to be highly interactive and, where possible, include case studies, simulations and group exercises.

Upon successful completion of all four e-workshops, participants will be awarded the Online Certificate on Essential Professional Skills. Participants will also receive a separate certificate for each e-workshop.

The online certificate is aimed at introducing its concept to the wider public and raising awareness around the selected topics. The registration will be open to the public and participants will be admitted upon selection after submitting their CV.
