Type of contract: Short term consultancy
Duration of contract: Consultancy report due end-July 2021
1. Background and Context of the Assignment:
Several obstacles need to be removed to eliminate the roots of gender inequality and civil society organizations have a key role in this regard. Although global figures show that gender inequality in net enrolment in primary school has been reduced in recent years, considerable disparities prevail at local and regional levels and girls and women are still the most excluded. The notion of gender inequality includes gender disparities related to unfair distribution of education opportunities for both men and women regardless of their gender diversity or sexual orientation. In this regard, the notion of gender inequality acknowledges the multiple forms of exclusion and discrimination faced by members of the LGTBQI+ communities.
According to the Education 2030 Steering Committee, no region has achieved gender parity. Female participation rates in technical-vocational programmes are lower than male participation rates in all regions, except Latin America and the Caribbean, where male participation rates are lower.
The goal of our work is to ensure equal rights to education and the promotion of gender-transformative approaches, pedagogy, teacher training and whole-of-education sector planning is a critical factor to achieving gender equality in and through education.
2. Purpose and Scope of the Assignment:
The overall purpose of this consultancy is to develop the Gender Strategy for the movement linked to the GCE Strategic Plan, from which concerted and concrete actions can be derived for the defense and promotion of the right to education of a) women, b) girls, c) young women, d) the LGTBQI + population, as well as to promote critical and transformative reflections on masculinities. The transdisciplinary and intersectional approach is essential.
