Product (RFP/RFQ/RFI/Solicitation/Tender/Bid Etc.) ID: MRB-18354

Government Authority located in Washington; USA based organization looking for expert vendor for social justice and equity commission public engagement services.

[A] Budget: Looking for Proposals

[B] Scope of Service:

Vendor needs to provide professional consulting services in public engagement and data analysis with a focus on diversity, racial equity and inclusion.
- Advisory Commissions & Committees
The City currently has twelve Advisory Committees, Commissions, and Boards. Advisory committees are a structured way for individual citizens to share their opinions and perspectives, study issues, and develop recommendations in a focused, small group structure. The primary purpose of Olympia’s advisory committees is to provide judicious advice, from a citizen perspective, to the Olympia City Council (Council) and City staff.
- Social Justice & Equity Advisory Commission
On June 9, 2020 the Council forwarded to the General Government Committee (a Committee comprised of three Council members who address topics related to public safety, general city policy, advisory committees, and community relation topics) a referral to request the development of a Human Rights Commission. The referral requested the Committee develop the best process to scope and populate a new advisory commission. The referral also outlined that community members most impacted by social and institutional racism needed to be integral to the development of the commission and its resulting work plan.
- On November 2, Council approved a process to establish a Social Justice & Equity Advisory Commission (Commission), including that the process be led by a Founding Member Work Group, made up of five community members representing marginalized populations, with an emphasis on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. This group would be responsible for hosting a series of Community Conversations to elevate the voices of marginalized community members, and use the input gathered to recommend to Council the new Commission’s:
• make-up and terms
• formal name (as “Social Justice & Equity Commission” is a Council-approved placeholder);
• scope of work; and
• first year work plan
The duties and responsibilities will be the following:
1. Designing and Facilitating Community Conversations. Work closely with the City and Work Group to design and host approximately four Community Conversations in a virtual platform. Provide input on meeting design, participant make-up, outreach methodologies, invitation, and data/input collection. Facilitate the meeting using a highly accessible and interactive virtual platform, while ensuring psychological safety for participants. Provide actionable insights and take-aways from the meetings and recommend adaptations to the design as needed.
2. Summarizing and Analyzing Public Input. Collect input/data from Community Conversations (and any other tool/platform used to collect community member input). Review, summarize, and analyze input for patterns, themes, and recommendations
3. Supporting the Founding Member Work Group. Provide expert guidance, research/best practices, recommendations, and draft documents to inform the Work Group and help them achieve their deliverables within the desired project timeline: Commission make-up and terms; formal name; scope of work; and first year work plan. Design and co-facilitate Work Group meetings with the City’s Equity & Inclusion Coordinator. Provide individual support to Work Group members in a work environment that will be highly visible, mentally and emotionally challenging, and potentially trauma-inducing for members.
4. Producing Reports and Documentation. Provide summaries, recommendations, and other content that can be shared with Council and process stakeholders. Prepare and submit a final report with the Work Group’s recommendations and visual and written documentation of the overall process.
