Facilitator of Asia Pacific Regional Programme Gender Network Webinar Series

General Information


Title of Consultancy: Gender Expert to Develop and Facilitate Online Webinar Series – Asia Pacific Regional Programme

Application Closing Date: 4 November 2018

Consultancy Term: Up to 15 days between 12 November 2018 and 28 February 2019

Location of Consultancy: Remote, with potential to hold a face-to-face workshop in Asia Pacific region.


Background

Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 100 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.

The Asia Pacific team in the Berlin Secretariat (TI-Secretariat) is currently running a multi-county programme TI Asia Pacific Regional Programme: Effective and Accountable Governance for Sustainable Growth.  The programme seeks to contribute to policy and behaviour change across the Asia Pacific region, leading to more effective anti-corruption enforcement, and ultimately to the reduction of corruption.

In mid-2018, the Asia Pacific team at TI-Secretariat and national chapters participating in the programme agreed to strengthen their understanding of and approach to gender. To achieve this, the Asia Pacific team is developing series of online webinars to support national chapters in exchanging knowledge and developing their internal understanding of gender considerations in their programmatic activities and governance structures. The series of webinars will lead to the development of a Regional Programme Gender Network, which will provide a platform for the TI-Secretariat and chapter staff to continue to identify, address and mainstream gender-related issues as they arise.

Regional Programme Gender Network: Relevant staff from participating national chapters will be identified and commit to become the Gender Focal Point for their chapter under the Regional Programme Gender Network. This would ideally be someone from, or close to, the chapter’s leadership team. They will help to identify others in their chapter (other staff, chapter leadership, board members, volunteers, etc.) who can provide input into and help implement the series of exercises proposed through the webinar series, for activities under the Regional Programme and/or the chapter, as relevant.


Objective

Transparency International is looking for a consultant to establish and develop the Regional Programme Gender Network through developing the capacity of the national Gender Focal Points. To do this, the consultant will:

  1. Develop content for five facilitated webinars / online workshops (approx. 1.5hrs each webinar), to be held between November 2018 and February 2019. The webinars will follow a series of gender-focussed topics, pre-agreed with the TI-Secretariat. As part of the webinar series, it is expected that, led and supported by the consultant, the Gender Focal Points will undertake a series of activities within their national chapter, such as gender audits, and report back on these to the consultant and TI-Secretariat throughout the webinar series.
  2. Facilitate the five webinars / online workshops with TI chapters and staff from the TI-Secretariat.
  3. Prepare a report for TI internal use comprising (a) brief summary of each webinar (approx. 1 page for each webinar); (b) overall narrative reporting on findings and outcomes of the seminar series (approx. 4 pages); and (c) recommendations for further developing the Regional Programme Gender Network (approx. 1.page). 
  4. As part of the webinar delivery, the consultant will provide materials to the Gender Focal Points that they can use and share at their national chapters to help sensitize and train their colleagues.
