Abandon Normal Devices (AND) is seeking an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion consultant with a specialism in organisational change to support the organisation at an exciting time of future planning. 

The seismic events of the past 8 months, the global covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter events, have highlighted the need for urgent transformation in our organisation and the sector more widely. In response we want to revisit our core values with a focus on social and climate justice,  co-creating a systemic approach of positive and practical sustained action across the organisation. 

The aim of the consultation process is to produce real world recommendations to inform actionable change in AND’s strategic direction and operations. We are seeking a consultant to lead and facilitate this process through close engagement with our Director, staff team, Board of Trustees and wider creative community. We are excited to begin this process in collaboration with an external partner, and want to hear from critical voices that can ensure the work we do is meaningful and has lasting change in all areas of our work.
