Call for consultants: Production of an impact report

2018 marks a decade since the inception of African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD). In the ten years since our founding, we have, through our flagship initiative – the AWARD Fellowship, strengthened the science, leadership, and mentoring skills of 1,158 scientists from 16 African countries. Out of these, 465 are outstanding women scientists who have benefited as AWARD Fellows and who embody the full potential of the innovative career development program. In addition, through our training initiative, we have designed customized learning experiences to build the leadership, mentoring, scientific research, and technical gender skills of more than 5,000 agricultural researchers in Africa.

As we celebrate a decade of huge investments in building a critical mass of capable, confident, and influential women scientists available to lead critical advances and innovations in the agricultural sector, we want to highlight the tremendous impact this initiative has had not just on the individual scientists, but also on the agricultural research and development landscape in Africa.

We also want to highlight how the training initiative has profoundly built the capacities of both individuals and institutions to pursue cutting-edge agricultural research. Ultimately, we want to underscore how gender-responsive agricultural research can be the epicenter of livelihood transformation.

AWARD seeks a consultant(s) to conceptualize, analyze available data and information, write, design and produce a print-ready version of a publication highlighting AWARD’s achievements and impacts over the last ten years, the AWARD@10 report. The consultant (s) will also be required to produce an interactive online version of the report.
