Request for Proposals: Public Health and Racial Equity Consultant

Objective and Background

The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) seeks to hire both a Lead Public Health and Racial Equity Consultant and a Lead Organizational Change Consultant to assist with developing an Anti-Racist Audit Tool for the NWCPHP.

NNPHI’s NCCPHT will perform an audit of NWCPHP to address racial justice by interrupting and dismantling racist and white supremacist practices, policies, and attitudes that disproportionately harm communities of color. Initially, consultants will review the work performed by NWCPHP for foundational data. The Expert Advisors will assist NWCPHP in customizing an Anti-racism Audit Tool by assisting with interviews, interpreting the environmental scan results, and researching the demographics and structure of the training center. An organizational change consultant will spearhead an initial assessment of the NWCPHP’s “readiness for change” while the Public Health and Racial Equity Consultant will spearhead the development of audit tool development, and action agenda. Additionally, the Expert Advisors will assess NWCPHP’s organizational structure, programs, relationships, and policies to evaluate their work using the anti-racism audit tool. Following the scan, the expert advisors will make recommendations to assist NWCPHP in dismantling racism in its structure, policies, programs, and culture.
