Indiana Humanities invites proposals from qualified applicants interested in entering into a contract to perform consulting and training services related to organizational equity, diversity and inclusion transformation. We are seeking services that will help members of our staff and board build skills and competencies as IH strives to operationalize diversity, equity and inclusion.
Indiana Humanities is committed to enabling a culture of participation and inclusion that best promotes the richness and complexity of the humanities. Essential to fostering such a culture is:
- Learning from the histories of inequity, bias and exclusion in the humanities as well as in Indiana.
- Establishing accessibility and inclusivity as central objectives of every Indiana Humanities program and event.
- Advancing more diverse perspectives from key stakeholders, including our board of directors and staff.
This work necessitates the interrogation of our own personal and institutional assumptions and biases and engagement in purposeful dialogues both internally and externally.
Recently, we conducted a yearlong strategic planning exercise, and a key strategy emerged. While diversity, equity and inclusion work is weaved throughout the entire plan, one key strategy is to “better understand, integrate and implement pro-equity practices.” This is one of the first steps in that process.
Proposals are due Friday, May 29 by 5 p.m. and work will begin on July 1, 2020. Read the full RFP here.
