Request for Proposal--Equity Consultant, The Griffin Centre

Toronto, Ontario
Deadline January 12, 2018

Since 1975, Griffin Centre has been delivering services to people who thought their needs didn’t count. We continue to expand our programs and services to respond to the changing and emerging needs of diverse individuals in our community. We help them find solutions to their challenges.

Griffin Centre’s programs and services are primarily funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to provide clear, fair and written evaluation standards to all candidates submitting responses.


Griffin Centre requires an experienced equity consultant to support a change management process which results in a more equitable and safe space for community members, staff and clients. The consultant will build upon and enhance current strategies and initiatives around diversity, equity and inclusion.

Specifically, Griffin Centre requires assistance in the development of policies and practices to make the organization more inclusive for trans and gender non-confirming, non-normative individuals using an anti-racist, anti-oppressive framework.

The process for this project will be collaborative and involve regular dialogue with Griffin staff, in particular the Director of Equity and Inclusion as well as members of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee who will be pivotal in encouraging the work.
