LO is searching for a consultant to facilitate a Participatory Gender Audit in Zanzibar.
The overall aim of this initiative is to make LO and partners more gender responsive. The Participatory Gender Audit (PGA) shall contribute to increase organisational learning and awareness and that the targeted trade union take the organisational ownership of gender equality initiatives and action planning.
This Participatory Gender Audit will be conducted at organisational level with LO's partner ZATUC in Zanzibar (Tanzania). A PGA team shall be established with one external consultant (hereafter called “the consultant”), one representative from LO, and two representatives of ZATUC.
The Consultant will be the lead facilitator of a participatory self-assessment methodology. With the assistance of the other members of the PGA team (one person from LO and two persons from ZATUC), participants (organisation staff and leadership) will assess attitudes and practices and develop ideas on how the organisation and the individual can improve on gender equality and mainstreaming.
The Audit shall be designed to increase organisational understanding, ownership and learning on Gender Equality and Gender Mainstreaming in trade unions. The audit will assess the current situation in the targeted trade union, the extent to which gender equality is being institutionalised1.
The participatory process will identify gaps, challenges, and opportunities. It shall help ZATUC establish a baseline, identify, and share information on mechanisms that work, and define recommendations and the way forward in promoting gender equality.
