Request for Proposals: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Consultant

Wed, 21 Oct 2020 17:21:01 +0000

Country: United States of America
Organization: Search for Common Ground
Closing date: 30 Oct 2020

Introduction

Search’s mission is to transform the way the world deals with conflict, away from adversarial approaches, toward cooperative solutions. The challenging and long-term work involved in this mission requires the ability to appreciate and bridge differences in identity and power, creating new systems that are both equitable and inclusive. Today, in the wake of a global movement for racial justice, Search is looking inward, recognizing the importance of aligning our internal organizational culture with the mission and values we espouse in our work in communities around the world. www.sfcg.org

Background

Search began the internal focus on DEI in 2019. The gender analysis of the 2019 Engagement Survey revealed global and regional disparities between how women and men experienced our organizational culture. While gender is a critical dimension of diversity, there are many other aspects of identity that deserve analysis to provide a baseline for DEI at Search. Search also recognized that representation of women and people of color on the Board and senior leadership is insufficient.

Search’s staff and leadership are committed to engage in an organizational change process to become a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization in a thoughtful, considered but also expeditious fashion.

Project Overview

Search is committed to fully exemplifying our core values internally and externally by intentionally and strategically advancing diversity, equity and inclusion amongst our staff, our partners and other key stakeholders. We recognize DEI as an essential component of our work.

We commit to creating a more equitable workplace. This requires fostering a cultural environment where fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people is the norm, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.

We seek to ensure the full participation and inclusion of all identities, and we commit to creating environments in which any individual or group feels welcomed, respected, supported, and valued to fully participate.

This organizational change process will involve building DEI into the very fabric of our organization. To achieve our Strategic Intent, we will:

Assess the current state of DEI at Search to inform organizational strategy and training design.

Build DEI knowledge, awareness, and skills among Search Leaders and Staff.

Cultivate a culture of equity and inclusion at Search.

Develop a strategy to integrate DEI into Search’s organizational objectives, systems, and processes. We commit to building the enabling mechanism for the success of the strategy.

Please click here for the full RFP- including information regarding scope of Work, desired qualifications, requested activities and deliverables, budget/pricing and contact information

Actualizing and living out our commitment to DEI across Search will require all leadership and all staff to fully embrace Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as integral to accomplishing our mission. With this intent, we commit to ensuring a diverse representation in our leadership, staffing and Board of Directors, of all the ways in which people differ, encompassing the different characteristics that make one individual or group different from another, including, but not limited to:

  • Race/ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Gender identity/expression
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Ability/disability
  • Socio-economic status
  • National origin
  • Accent
  • Education
  • Body size
  • Political affiliation

We commit to creating a more equitable workplace. This requires fostering a cultural environment where fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people is the norm, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.

We seek to ensure the full participation and inclusion of all identities, and we commit to creating environments in which any individual or group feels welcomed, respected, supported, and valued to fully participate.

RCA - Un·e Responsable Programme Plateforme Logistique à Bangui

Wed, 21 Oct 2020 16:32:06 +0000

Country: Central African Republic
Organization: Première Urgence Internationale
Closing date: 1 Jan 2021

Date d'arrivée : Décembre 2020

Durée de la mission : 12 mois

Lieu : Bangui, République Centrafricaine

Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) est une Organisation Non Gouvernementale de solidarité internationale, à but non lucratif, apolitique et laïque. L’ensemble de ses personnels se mobilise au quotidien pour couvrir les besoins fondamentaux des victimes civiles mises en péril, marginalisées ou exclues par les effets de catastrophes naturelles, de guerres et de situations d’effondrement économique. L’objectif est d’aider les populations déracinées dans l’urgence, tout en leur permettant de regagner rapidement autonomie et dignité. L’association mène environ 200 projets par an, dans les domaines de la sécurité alimentaire, la santé, la nutrition, la réhabilitation d’infrastructures, l’eau et l’assainissement et la relance économique. PUI intervient en appui à près de 6 millions de personnes dans 22 pays, en Afrique, en Asie, au Moyen-Orient, en Europe de l’Est et en France.

Découvrez nos valeurs et notre histoire.

SITUATION ET BESOINS HUMANITAIRES

La République Centrafricaine fait partie des pays les plus pauvres du monde On comptait fin 2018 selon le Plan de Réponse Humanitaire 2019, plus de 2,9 millions de personnes en besoin d’aide humanitaire immédiate dont plus de la moitié sont des enfants, soit une augmentation de 16% par rapport à l’année précédente Au 30 septembre 2018 il a été rapporté plus de 643 000 personnes déplacées et une augmentation du nombre de réfugiés centrafricains de 542 896 à 573 242 personnes. La faillite de l’État se traduit par le dysfonctionnement des services publics, l’insécurité permanente, et l‘aggravation des tensions entre groupes armés.

En mars 2013, le président, François Bozizé, est renversé par une alliance de groupes rebelles (Séléka) qui prennent alors le contrôle du territoire. Michel Djotodia, leader des Séléka est investi Chef de l’Etat et du gouvernement de transition, à la condition de rétablir la sécurité dans le pays. Malgré ses tentatives, le Président ne parvient pas à endiguer la crise et les tensions intercommunautaires entre Séléka et Anti-balaka se propagent à l’ensemble du territoire. En Janvier 2014, il est donc remplacé par Catherine Samba-Panza, présidente de la transition, période qui doit mener aux élections fin 2015. En février 2016, Faustin Archane TOUADERA est élu président de la République. Les élections ne sont pas une fin en soi, les différentes fractures sociales, les faibles perspectives économiques et les problèmes d’insécurité nécessitent beaucoup d’efforts pour sortir le pays de la crise.

De plus, la République Centrafricaine, sur le plan politique, a été marquée en 2018 par un regain de violence sur l’ensemble de son territoire, malgré la volonté du gouvernement élu depuis 2016 de mettre fin aux combats et de proposer un plan de désarmement, de démobilisation et de réinsertion (DDR) de grande envergure. La présence de groupes armés dans plusieurs régions du pays, accroit l’instabilité chronique qui persiste dans de nombreuses zones. Les récents regains de violence en avril 2018 ont ravivé la complexité de la crise et les défis auxquels la République Centrafricaine doit faire face.

Le début de l'année, en février 2019, a été marqué par l'Accord de paix de Khartoum, qui a réuni les parties prenantes au conflit et conduit à la constitution d'un nouveau gouvernement. Pourtant, cette accalmie temporaire ne peut cacher les attaques diverses et occasionnelles qui traversent le pays, ni la volatilité du contexte.

NOS ACTIONS SUR LE TERRAIN

PUI cible les zones les plus fragiles au cœur desquelles l’approche intégrée des interventions humanitaires menées par la structure sont développées au bénéfice des populations confrontées aux répercussions humanitaires de crises sécuritaires. Avant le coup d’Etat de mars 2013, déjà 1,9 millions d’habitants (soit environ 50% de la population) requéraient une assistance humanitaire (source, CAP 2012). En outre, l’extrême vulnérabilité structurelle se traduit par une faible résistance aux chocs environnementaux, économiques, sécuritaires.

Dans ce contexte, l’intervention de PUI vise à appuyer directement les populations dont les capacités d’absorption des chocs est faible, et à restaurer l’accès aux biens et services de base dans les zones en crise sur des secteurs tels que la santé, la nutrition, la sécurité alimentaire et les moyens d’existence. L’intervention humanitaire en République Centrafricaine est renforcée par la plateforme logistique que gère PUI à Bangui et les déploiements en province.

PUI en RCA s’appuie sur 3 piliers stratégiques

  • Renforcer l’accès aux services sociaux de base pour les populations les plus vulnérables dans une logique d’appui aux structures publiques
  • Soutenir le relèvement socio-économique des communautés affectées par la crise
  • Contribuer à l’efficacité et à l’impact de la réponse humanitaire, notamment en situation d’urgence

Coordinateur sécurité (H/F) - République centrafricaine

Wed, 21 Oct 2020 16:02:28 +0000

Country: Central African Republic
Organization: Médecins du Monde
Closing date: 18 Jan 2021

Médecins du Monde, association médicale militante de solidarité internationale, s'engage depuis plus de 30 ans à soigner les populations les plus vulnérables ici et là-bas, à témoigner des entraves constatées quant à l’accès aux soins, à obtenir des améliorations durables des politiques de santé pour tous.

Association indépendante, nous agissons au-delà du soin en dénonçant les atteintes à la dignité et aux droits humains et en nous battant pour améliorer la situation des populations précaires.

En France comme à l’international dans plus de 35 pays, nos actions ont pour but de faciliter l’accès au système de santé en travaillant sur 5 thématiques prioritaires structurant nos combats et nos plaidoyers : urgences et crises, santé sexuelle et reproductive, réduction des risques, migrations, droits et santé et santé-environnement.

En République centrafricaine, MdM a répondu à la crise à partir de juin 2013, d’abord en soutenant des partenaires locaux, puis en organisant des cliniques mobiles sur les sites de déplacés de Bangui. De mars 2014 à début 2020, MdM est intervenu en appui au système de santé en soutenant le service de maternité d'un hôpital et six centres de santé situés à Bangui et dans sa périphérie. Par la suite, MdM s'est repositionné en province à travers :

  • le déploiement d’une clinique mobile (déploiement à Bangui de novembre 2019 à fin janvier 2020, déploiement actuel à Damara sur une réponse rougeole) sur financement ECHO et Fonds humanitaire
  • l’ouverture d’une base et d’un nouveau projet dans la sous-préfecture de Bouca (Ouham) depuis mai 2020 sur financement allemand GFFO (une clinique mobile et un appui à l’hôpital de Bouca la première année avec un renforcement des formations sanitaires dès l’obtention de financements complémentaires et le développement d'une stratégie de santé communautaire).

Conformément aux priorités stratégiques de MdM, l’appui aux soins de santé primaires (SSP) est une porte d’entrée permettant d’offrir des soins de santé sexuelle et reproductive (SSR). Ainsi, outre la prise en charge des pathologies les plus courantes (IRA, IDA, paludisme, etc.), MdM soutient la mise en œuvre de consultations pré et post natales, de consultations de planning familial et la prise en charge des victimes de violences liées au genre (VLG) et des avortements incomplets. La stratégie d’intervention en santé mentale et soutien psychosocial, quant à elle, est actuellement en cours de réflexion pour une meilleure adaptation des activités aux besoins de la population et au contexte centrafricain.

La stratégie d’intervention pour la période à venir prévoit donc une nette augmentation du volume opérationnel et financier, ainsi que de la couverture géographique, et un focus plus urgentiste. Vous devrez donc piloter et accompagner cette transition.

Overview

JRS operates a certified Teacher Training (TT) program for over 250 teachers of both the refugee communities and host community in Maban South Sudan. The program is comprised of a two-year intensive pre-service program and an in-service program for teachers in schools. Upon completion, trained teachers gain an official certificate in Primary Teacher Education recognized by the Ministry of Education and General Instruction. JRS aims to provide holistic preparation for Teacher Trainees in its program, including subject material training, best practices in teaching techniques, and addressing the diverse needs of their future students in the classroom. **

JRS is seeking to recruit a suitable candidate to provide consultancy by developing a Competency Based Curriculum Manual JRS Maban’s Teacher Trainig Program and conduct a virtual training to Teacher Trainers. In alignment with South Sudan’s goal of enhancing the quality of education and encouraging a culture of innovation and continuous school improvement and effectiveness, the consultant will be responsible for introducing Teacher Trainers to the unique learning needs of primary school learners as envisioned in new Competency Based Curriculum and ensuring that Teacher Trainers are prepared to effectively accommodate and include them in classroom instruction.

Project Description

In 2019, the Government of South Sudan (GoSS) rolled out a new curriculum; Competency Based Curriculum moving away from the Outcome Based Curriculum. This has necessitated the Teacher Training programs to shift and align their training to the new curriculum.

The GoSS has continued to support the development and introduction of a competency-based curriculum for Early Years Education (EYE). The new curriculum puts the subjects of the curriculum into a broader context of values, principles, student competencies and the rich culture and heritage of South Sudan. The curriculum will equip learners with skills and attitudes to make good use of that knowledge and to apply it in the service of the community. The subject knowledge together with the skills and attitudes forms the competencies that will enable learners to become global citizens in the 21st Century. Based on this new curriculum, JRS has been mandated by UNHCR to develop a training manual and curriculum support materials for its Primary Education Teacher Training program in South Sudan. This manual should also a monitoring and evaluation component of the curriculum implementation process and evaluation of curricula.

JRS Operations in South Sudan

JRS currently works in South Sudan in two different field locations, Maban and Yambio. These projects are supported by a Country Office Team based in Juba. This ToR applies to work in JRS Maban. JRS South Sudan and UNHCR has been implementing a three-year project on increased quality of education for refugee and host community children in Maban. Access to quality education is a function of multiple inputs which are covered by consortium partners in Maban. JRS Maban’s primary contribution is focused on improving the quality of teaching and learning by enhancing the skills and qualifications of teachers.

Key Issues

JRS has identified, in a mixed methodology approach, the following challenges that will frame its work in the coming years.

(1) Limited access to quality education; (2) Limited access to quality early childhood development education and support; (3) Negative attitudes towards people with special needs and subsequent social exclusion; The findings in the JRS needs assessment point that provision of quality teaching is a major challenge. The difference between the Sudanese curriculum (in Arabic) and the South Sudanese curriculum (in English) is one of the major challenges. 60% of the camp population are below 18 years of age and thus of school going age. Limited professional skills and a lack of qualified primary school teachers (especially female teachers) are some of the major concerns raised by most stakeholders.

JRS recognizes that education is a significant factor in the mental and physical protection of children and, if properly delivered, can be itself be a critical psychosocial intervention for children living in crisis situations. In recognition of this fundamental role education in emergencies has in the well-being and protection of children, JRS is taking a more deliberate approach in providing a professional development program equipping teachers with the knowledge to create a safe and stable environment that promotes the well-being of children; including the skills to engage in instructional process that promotes inclusiveness, addressing the needs of all learners, including those with disabilities.
