Washington Evaluators is requesting proposals for a Consultant to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into WE's strategic planning process. Proposals are due Nov. 2, 2020.
Washington Evaluators serves the evaluation community by advocating for the growth of the evaluation profession and by fostering state-of the art knowledge and information sharing about evaluation practice. The organization’s current strategic plan, which covers operations from 2017-2020, includes four key strategic goals: strengthening the sustainability of the evaluation community; enhancing evaluation relationships and interactions; supporting individual evaluators' professional development needs; and ensuring strong administration of the organization.
As the organization begins to develop a new strategic plan for 2021-2024, and in light of WE’s 2020 commitments to integrating anti-racism into our programming, membership, community engagement, and communication activities, and administration/operations, the WE board wishes to engage a Consultant to solicit membership inputs on strategic priorities and the integration of a DEI lens to inform the organization’s 2021-2024 strategic plan.
Qualified candidates will be expert in designing and facilitating interactive and participatory online meetings using Zoom (or equivalent) technology; have experience with strategic planning at the organizational level; and have expert knowledge in DEI theories, practices, and standards and experience applying this knowledge in a professional setting. People of color, LGBTQ individuals, people with disabilities, and people with other marginalized identities are strongly encouraged to apply. Due to the virtual nature of this scope of work, we will consider qualified candidates living anywhere in the US; travel to the Washington, DC area is not required.
