Stakeholder Engagement Specialist

The University of Toronto, Bruyere Research Institute, and Nutrition International were recently awarded a grant under the Canadian Collaborative for Global Health, and are now seeking a stakeholder engagement specialist for their lab, Addressing gender and nutrition data gaps through the operationalization of the Gender-Transformative Framework for Nutrition. The job description and application requirements can be found below.

Collaborating partner organizations are working towards an operational toolkit based on the Gender-Transformative Framework for Nutrition (GTFN). In close collaboration with the project team, your responsibilities would include the following three outputs:

Stakeholder Analysis Exercise: Lead an equity-focused stakeholder analysis exercise and provide key
considerations for the identification of Steering Committee members based on established governance
structure – an Advisory Committee may also be explored.

Stakeholder Consultation Exercise: Lead a stakeholder consultation exercise that applies equity principles to obtain preliminary insights into stakeholder priorities and preferences regarding the content and format of a GTFN toolkit. The activities of this exercise should aim to identify assumptions and context-specific considerations, and remove potential biases and blind spots of our research team through an intersectional approach between end-users, relevant community members and stakeholders.

Stakeholder Engagement Plan: Lead the development of an equity-focused stakeholder engagement plan for future phases of the project that is co-created with project stakeholders. The plan should include an evaluation framework to assess the effects of the stakeholder engagement plan on the project’s stakeholders and outcomes.
