NEW United Way Miami RFP: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Leadership Training Consultant

Application Deadline: Friday 1/7/22 by 5 pm EST

United Way Miami (UWM) works to improve education, financial stability, and health in Miami-Dade County. Using a collective impact model, UWM engages public, private and nonprofit partners. UWM leads and supports a variety of strategies to create lasting change including direct services, program funding, advocacy, collaboration, volunteer engagement, public awareness, training and capacity-building, and more. The purpose of this RFP is to identify a training consultant (individual or firm) that will adapt and/or develop and facilitate a training series (3-4 sessions) focused on DEI leadership development for up to 50 participants (described below). While each session within the series should result in stand-alone learning gains, all sessions should fit together as a cohesive series. As a result of training, participants will increase knowledge; they will leave better equipped to model, encourage, inform and influence DEI effectiveness within local nonprofit organizations. Through this RFP process, potential trainers will propose the learning objectives and training plans they deem most important and responsive to the UWM interests (described above). However, UWM envisions training that may provide participants with general knowledge and vocabulary regarding DEI, expose them to practical methods and opportunities for nonprofits to cultivate a DEI focus, and help them consider how they (participants) may start making a difference as leaders within their own organizations. Methods should be applicable to a variety of issue areas and service providing contexts. For more information click here.
