REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
STRATEGIC PLANNING CONSULTANT
YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County, a leader in eliminating racism and empowering women through housing and young adult services, has initiated a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to identify qualified applicants to guide and execute a strategic planning process to inform a three-year strategic plan.
As a mission driven organization, YWCA will develop a new strategic plan for 2022-2025 and seeks to engage applicants that can integrate a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging lens to inform this plan. The successful applicant will work closely with the President & CEO as well as the Strategic Planning Steering Committee to develop the specific details and logistics of the planning process, implementation and evaluation.
WHO WE WANT FOR A PARTNER
We seek applicants who demonstrate a strong overall understanding of the importance of mission, structure, and community impact when creating a strategic impact plan. We expect an individual or team to shine with strong facilitation skills, a commitment to innovation, proven experience with strategic planning, and an “all-in attitude” for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Justice Initiatives.
We commit to embracing innovative “change for good” and look for a consultant or consulting team that shares our vision.
MWBE certified, Minority-owned businesses, woman-owned businesses, veteran owned, and emerging small businesses are celebrated at YWCA and will receive preference. Candidates and teams that are energetic, compassionate and demonstrate a strong sense of humor are also preferred.
All proposals are due by January 14, 2022 at 5:00 PM EST.
