Background of the project 

Gender, Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion is a key component of the IRC’s strategy and vision, and has been identified as a core global priority for our strategic plan, Strategy100.  As an organization, we are committed anti-racism and fighting discrimination, understanding the systemic underpinnings of both, and recognizing that different parts of the world experience these issues in different ways. The IRC GEDI action plan aims to build an inclusive organizational culture where diversity will be championed and represented at all leadership levels and every staff member is safe respected and encouraged to bring their authentic self to work.

GEDI learning and training is one of our key drivers to foster and inclusive culture that builds on individual and organizational transformation and accountability to uphold IRC equality values. In order to advance and strengthen our approach to GEDI learning, IRC is looking for an independent consultant to support the initial development of an organization-wide comprehensive Gender, Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion learning development strategy.
