Call for proposals: Facilitator for Love Alliance Strategic Board Meeting

The Love Alliance is a five-year programme (2021-2025) that prioritises and invests in challenging the structural barriers of underfunding, criminalisation and exclusion of LGBTQI+, sex worker and people who use drugs communities in all our diversity We have over 125 grantees in 10 countries: Burkina Faso, Burundi, Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe. The Strategic Board of the Love Alliance Funders consists of 7 representatives from Alliance members and a non-voting coordinator.

Scope of consultancy

The Love Alliance seeks a skilled facilitator who has experience with governance boards to help design the agenda and facilitate the online Board meetings and an annual retreat. The start of the consultancy is on the first of October to prepare for the online Board meeting on the 19th of October. This will be a maximum of six hours of online meeting (with a lunch break). We anticipate that the preparatory call, facilitation, and review of minutes will not exceed two days of work.

 If our collaboration is successful we will continue the facilitation in 2023. In 2023, the Love Alliance will have quarterly online meetings and an in-person reflection meeting where both Board members and their alternates join to reflect on progress, strategic issues, and decision-making. For 2023, we anticipate that quarterly online meetings take 2 days per meeting and the in-person retreat 7 days, meaning 15 days’ work in total.  Additionally, travel will be arranged/reimbursed separately, within an agreed budget.

We are interested in consultants who have experience in a range of facilitation methodologies to help focus the participants on developing consensus and making decisions equitably, with attention to manifestations of power and privilege. Ideally, the successful candidate would have an understanding of rights-based, HIV and SRHR-related programming for LGBTQI+ people, sex workers, and people who use drugs and of working in a partnership/alliance. We are looking for someone with excellent communication skills in English, including written communication.  We highly encourage candidates from North, West, Eastern, or Southern Africa, and we particularly welcome candidates from one of the Love Alliance countries (Burundi, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe).
