    Banyan Global is an international development consulting firm with offices based in Washington, DC and abroad. Banyan Global operates seamlessly within six practice areas: health, finance and investment, enterprise development, gender, youth, and evaluation and learning.

     

    USAID/Armenia will be hiring Banyan Global to conduct a Gender Analysis and Assessment to inform USAID/Armenia’s 2020-2025 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS).

    The Team Leader will work with a research team, and collaborate with USAID/Armenia staff and partners, local academia, government institutions and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to gather data for the Gender Analysis and Assessment. The consultant will travel to Armenia for 4-5 weeks to conduct the field work for the Gender Analysis and Assessment (likely to take place in early-to-mid-August 2018).

    • Master’s degree in sociology, anthropology, economics, or another relevant social sciences field.
    • Familiarity with public policies, strategies and legal frameworks addressing gender and social inclusion gaps, gender-based violence, disability, and the gender agendas and programs of the main development agencies in Armenia.
