Under its gender practice, Banyan Global is providing technical expertise to the Mali Sub-National Governance Program, which is a five-year program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The aim of the program is to promote targeted changes in public and regional financial management systems at the national and regional levels to improve financial decentralization, through adequate transfer of resources from the central to the local level, and an increase of the quantity and quality of basic social services (Health and Education).
Banyan Global is recruiting a French-speaking, International Gender and Organizational Development Consultant for 7-8 months to undertake multiple missions to Bamako, Mali. The Consultant would support the strengthening of the organizational and governance capacity of SNGP national partner. The capacity-building would include trainings and support the updating of internal operating documents and procedures.
The consultant would also support human resource reform within the Government of Mali with an emphasis on recruiting and retaining more women in public service, as well as enhancing the capacity of women already in public service to make better decisions regarding budgeting and service delivery. Within this context, the consultant would also lead the technical area of promoting (both male and female) gender champions in public service who have a history of gender-sensitive politics and key male allies with a history of experience in gender integration or women’s empowerment. The aim in so doing would be to encourage networking and learning on gender sensitive political approaches and policies.
