CONSULTANT SERVICES FOR OUR ALLIANCE OF HER PROGRAM

Description and purpose of the contract

The purpose of this call for tender is to conclude multiple service framework agreements for the provision of consultancy services in the frame of our program the Alliance of Her.  

The Alliance of Her is our women’s empowerment program whose mission is to create change by empowering women in Europe to pursue their political ambitions. The Alliance of Her does this by:

  • Delivering world-leading academies for talented, ambitious liberal women at all stages of their political journey. Typically, an Academy is divided into three sessions, including a graduation ceremony, each of the sessions lasting 3 to 4 days. Over the course of the Academy, participants can develop their political strategies, build their knowledge of key political techniques, identify pathways for overcoming gendered barriers, get inspired and expand their network.
  • Harnessing the collective power of our growing alumnae and allies’ network and sharing resources, expertise and inspiration. Alumnae are connected via online forums as well as through events and other initiatives, such as issuing political statements on events taking place in Europe and around the world. Our goal is to expand this network and create stronger connections between our partners, allies and our alumnae.
  • Advocating towards a more gender equal European politics. The Alliance Of Her works with our greatest asset – our Alumnae – to make as visible as possible the status of women in politics, their lived experiences, why their voices are important and what solutions we can all be a part of to ensure more of them are able to lead and succeed. We do this primarily through policy and PR events, research, and campaigns.
