Banyan Global is a women-owned and managed international development consulting firm based in Washington, DC, with staff working in a number of countries across the world. Banyan Global operates within six practice areas: health, finance and investment, enterprise development, gender, youth, and monitoring, evaluation and learning.
Banyan Global leads a wide range of flagship gender research and implementation activities for USAID, including under the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Gender Integration Technical Assistance (GITA) II Task Order. The GITA II Task Order makes available global, on-demand, rapid-response, short-term technical assistance (STTA) on gender integration to USAID Missions and Bureaus across multiple sectors and in crisis and non-crisis settings. It applies expertise in gender research and practice to the process of designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating USAID strategies, projects, and activities to reduce the gender and women’s empowerment gaps that impede development outcomes. Assignments include carrying out county-level gender and social inclusion analyses and assessments to inform USAID Country Development Cooperation Strategies, as well as more specific work on gender-based violence (GBV) or other priority themes related to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Banyan Global is seeking qualified senior-level French-speaking gender and GBV experts to lead and implement assignments, some of which require overseas travel.
