World Learning is a leading international non-profit organization working to create a more peaceful and just world through education, development, and exchange. We are seeking an experienced Gender Equality & Social Inclusion (GESI) Specialist for the anticipated USAID-funded Leadership Activity in Myanmar. The project seeks to provide leadership training centered around scholarships in the U.S. to improve technical skills (including but not limited to economic affairs), promote tolerance of diversity, and advance Burma’s self-reliance.
The GESI Specialist will lead design and implementation of a context-specific gender and social inclusion analysis and ensure findings are adequately integrated into the program’s implementation and monitoring and evaluation plan. S/he will work closely with project leadership to develop inclusive outreach strategies and recruitment processes to ensure the inclusion of diverse participants, particularly women and marginalized populations, in the scholarship program. S/he will design and lead activities that build greater tolerance of ethnic and religious diversity among Leadership Activity participants.
