Medact is seeking a skilled trainer and facilitator to support the Medact staff team, board of trustees and volunteers from our movement to develop our anti-oppression work.

Purpose

  1. Provide two online 2-hour training sessions to help volunteer leaders of the Medact movement and staff to develop their facilitation skills around race literacy and anti-oppressive facilitation techniques. 
  2. Support Medact’s anti-oppression working group (a staff-led group) by providing advice on how they should approach the monitoring and evaluation part of their anti-oppression strategy for the organisation. This could look like a meeting with the team, followed by detailed guidance in writing that you will discuss with the team on a call. Or we are open to other suggestions. 
  3. One online coaching session to support our Race & Health Justice Group to manage embodied race-related internal group dynamics. We imagine this would be roughly one 2-hour workshop dependent on your recommendation. 
  4. Facilitate one workshop in-person (or online if necessary due to COVID-19) with Medact’s Board of Trustees to 1) facilitate the development of board knowledge of and skills in applying an actively anti-oppressive approach to the governance of Medact, and 2) further develop board members’ ability to recognise and take an active role in addressing oppressive power dynamics within the board and ensure anti-oppressive engagement with staff/volunteers. We anticipate this would be a half-day workshop dependent on your recommendation.
