Consulting opportunity: Diversity, Equity & inclusion assessment, organizational development

Since our founding twenty-five years ago, Environmental Initiative continues to address Minnesota’s complex environmental challenges through partnership and collaboration. The organization envisions and works towards a healthy environment, prosperous economy, and equitable society where leaders are equipped with the relationships, skills, and perspective needed to work together to solve our shared systemic and complex environmental problems.

Over the past two years Environmental Initiative has begun the journey of exploring how we can better address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), both within our organization and through our work as a mission-driven non-profit. 

In order to further our development and transformation towards a more inclusive organization that is equipped to take meaningful action to advance a more equitable society we are seeking a qualified consultant to, over the next 18–24 months:

  • Conduct an organization-wide assessment using the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI)
  • Develop and deliver a customized training plan that can assist with staff and organizational development
  • Support our process of developing more specific organizational goals related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as frameworks for action to support achieving these goals

Applicants should read more about the requirements of the opportunity, required application materials, contract terms, and the evaluation process in Environmental Initiative’s Request for Proposals.

Proposals may be submitted electronically or by mail. Proposals must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 31.
