I. Project Background
The Organizational Development Activity (ODA) is a mechanism funded by USAID/Uganda that amplifies and strengthens the Mission’s organizational health and staff development which ultimately underpin the Mission’s effective and efficient performance in delivering and facilitating development advancements for the Ugandan people. The ODA team provides support to the mission, its offices and staff, with a particular focus on: Improving Strategic Alignment, Amplifying Leadership Culture, Strengthening Talent Management Processes and Tools, and Building Staff Capability.
II. Specific Challenges to be Addressed
USAID recognizes the well-established link between inclusive societies and development. In its programmatic activities it seeks to help Ugandans and their institutions strengthen policies, practices, and norms that promote the full inclusion of women, youth, the disabled, LGBTI individuals and communities, ethnic and religious minorities, and other marginalized populations into the mainstream of society, the economy, and the country’s political processes and institutions. It is critical that USAID itself models and demonstrates the value of the policies, practices, and norms it is promoting. ODA will support USAID in these efforts based on a gender, youth, and social inclusion (GYSI) analysis of the internal Mission culture.
The primary objective of the consultancy is to complete a gender, youth, and social inclusion analysis of the internal Mission culture. The consultant will conduct a desk review and facilitate a participatory process to collect information regarding the Mission culture in these areas, analyze findings, and produce a report containing tangible, practical recommendations for presentation to the Mission Leadership Council (MLC) for Mission consideration and to the ODA technical team for ODA consideration.
