Remote Consultancy Opportunity Alert! The Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) is looking for a Consultancy To Revise The EM2030 Data-Driven Advocacy Facilitator Guide!



Location: Remote

Application Deadline: 30 May 2024


The Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) coalition is a collective of national, regional, and global leaders from feminist networks, civil society, and international development. The coalition’s overarching goal is to bridge the gap between data and evidence and advocacy and action on gender equality to transform the lives of women and girls and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To achieve this, EM2030 develops and disseminates data-driven resources such as demand-driven data, visualisations, analysis, and tools, including the SDG Gender Index, which serves as its flagship initiative to monitor progress and hold governments accountable.

The Equal Measures 2030 Data-Driven Advocacy (DDA) Facilitator Guide is critical in advancing the coalition’s mission. The facilitator guide has trained thousands of gender advocates globally and empowers the global women’s rights and feminist community with the skills and knowledge to utilise data effectively. It explicitly targets Women’s Rights Organizations (WROs) and feminist and gender equality advocates by providing them with a comprehensive understanding of the importance of data in advancing gender equality and the necessary skills to engage stakeholders and drive action. The guide consists of nine modules, each designed to be delivered within a 90-minute session.

The revision of the training guide is essential for capturing new knowledge generated from implementing the current version and ensuring it remains relevant in the gender data ecosystem. It will incorporate new and emerging concepts and the lessons learned over the years. Additionally, it is necessary to align the DDA training facilitator guide with the current structure of the EM2030 coalition, ensuring accessibility and effectiveness for all coalition members.
