IT for Change (www.ITforChange.net) is recruiting for an ambitious project that will work with high school girls in Bengaluru. The project seeks to deploy digital technologies for intensive, hands-on activities with groups of girls and school-wide workshops and teacher trainings, in government and aided schools. Over 3 years, we hope to make a dent in the way multiple cohorts of girl students experience their sense of self and exercise their agency, questioning disempowering ideologies and practices. We also wish to bring about systemic change in the school context so that the educational environment is able to recognise and address the routine cultures that prevent girls from actualising their potential. The idea is to build a STEM project for girls, with a difference - focusing on digital artefacts, tech labs and gender labs, to catalyse a feminist consciousness in curricular and co-curricular pursuits.
We are looking to recruit for the position of:
Location: Bengaluru, Karnataka
The Project Leader will manage the overall design, progress and strategic directions of the project, combining techno-elements creatively. She will be responsible for authoring reports and policy briefs to disseminate the model. She will mentor team members and execute training sessions with a range of stakeholders, from students to teachers. She will be the primary interface with the school system, maintaining rapport and creating the space for sustained interactions with girls. She will shepherd the project through various big and small events, leading up to 3 years of a multi-layered capacity building for the school system. She will marshal necessary support from media, local bureaucracy and the funding ecosystem to help institutionalise the model.
The Project Leader will be a mid-career professional, fluent in English and Kannada, with demonstrated experience as a trainer-educator and high degree of comfort in using a basic set of digital tools - office suite, mobile apps, basic design software etc. She will also have a Masters degree in a related field.
The position requires proficiency in designing modules and training curricula for participatory gender transformative change in group and institutional contexts. It calls for leadership in carrying various stakeholders along for effectively achieving project goals.
The position will entail local travel to different schools in Bengaluru South. Female candidates will be preferred for the position.
