PartnersIraq, established in 2017, is a locally led non-governmental organization that aims to build sustainable partnerships between government, citizens, and civil society organizations in Iraq by promoting good governance, rule of law, economic development, and gender equality.
PartnersGlobal and PartnersIraq, collectively known as Partners, both affiliates of the Partners Network, have used collaborative leadership, consensus building, and cooperative advocacy to assist vulnerable populations in forging positive relationships with government officials, local civil society activists, and community leaders to build a more inclusive, secure, and sustainable future in Iraq.
PartnersGlobal requires a consultant to support the development of and deliver a training module on monitoring and documenting instances of discrimination and harassment in the workplace for Iraqi civil society organizations (CSOs). This module will be part of a workshop on gender-sensitive representation and the gender-based provisions of Iraq’s labor law under the Workforce Empowerment for Women project (WEW), funded by Global Affairs Canada. The training curriculum will be comprised of 3 primary modules:
- The gender provisions of the Iraqi Labor Law
- Monitoring and Documentation of discrimination and harassment instances at the workplace
- Cooperative Advocacy
This ToR is for the second module only (Monitoring and documentation of discrimination and harassment instances at the workplace).
Proposed Scope and Activities
The consultant will work collaboratively with PartnersGlobal and PartnersIraq (Partners) to prepare and deliver a 2-day online training session for CSO members.
The training session will focus on methodologies, tools, and best practices for monitoring gender discrimination and harassment at the workplace, the administration of such tools in the local context of Iraq, and trauma-sensitive approaches to working with victims of sexual and gender-based harassment. The training module will collaboratively be developed by the Partners team and the consultant, in order to incorporate contextual elements, ensuring that the training is relevant, effective, and useful to the trainees.
The consultant will work in close coordination with Partners, to ensure quality, consistency, and the successful completion of all training outputs and outcomes.
The consultant should expect feedback from and engagement with other project partners and stakeholders throughout the process.
