- The IHRF and ITF will partner with SIPD, APTN and other intersex- and trans-led regional networks to organize intersex- and trans-specific capacity-building and networking workshops in each region
- SIPD and APTN will lead regional networking and advocacy efforts for intersex and trans movements in Africa and Asia & the Pacific respectively
- ILGA World will partner with intersex and trans activists on international human rights advocacy efforts and initiatives, including through the collaborative Trans Advocacy Week and by exploring opportunities to collaboratively enhance intersex advocacy at the United Nations.
The Intersex and Trans Movement-Building Project Manager will work with Astraea and all partners to manage the implementation of this exciting initiative. The consultancy can be based anywhere in the world. Estimated level of effort (LOE) is approximately 14 hours/week on average.
