RFQ - Facilitator for Equity & Inclusion

Request for Qualifications Facilitator for Equity & Inclusion Strategic Plan and Work Session

Posted on: 2022/01/05

The City of North Kansas City is soliciting responses from qualified firms to establish a
prequalified list of professional trainers, moderators and/or educators to facilitate a 4-hour
listening and strategic planning work session to include members of the Equity and Inclusion Committee (EIC) to collectively explore and agree upon shared goals, strategies and performance expectations, as well as the most appropriate way forward for continuing the City’s
equity and inclusion work.

The respondent must be able to help work session attendees develop a strategic plan containing practical, appropriate, and achievable goals and expectations of EIC work within the North Kansas City government as well as the NKC community at large. The Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plan is intended to guide the EIC’s efforts for the next 2-3 years.

It is expected each participating attendee will bring current and projected goals and expectations for EIC work, to the work session for discussion. The facilitator must be equipped to execute the EIC Strategic Planning Session Work Session by June 2022.

The City, in partnership with the Equity and Inclusion Committee, reserves the right to add additional firms to ensure the cultural uniqueness, representation, sensitivity, and scope of the work is adequately considered and addressed by submitting respondents. Respondents shall not provide pricing in their response; only qualifications. Respondents should note, the
proposed budget for this initial D&I project will not exceed $7,500.
