Policy Making & Strategic Planning

Today, we know that not every person has the same and equal ability to access support services. For organizations, services providers and medical facilities it is an important step to improve people’s access to social, counselling and medical services. By that step they are actively contributing to an open and inclusive society. This sometimes brings new insights and at times perhaps even uncertainties. Expanding offered services and continuing to educate oneself, helps to support people in need on their individual paths in life. In addition, it offers the potential for one to personally profit from various aspects that come with when opening up for diversity.

 

I am happy to support you in making your services inclusive of gender diversity. Whether it is about revising your mission statement, updating your internal policies, designing a new project or simply opening up your existing concept to the trans and inter community. I will be happy to assist you in this process.

 

Please have a look at 'Workshops' for more information about practical training and education opportunities.

 

Research Design & Project Development

Research today is a complex undertaking. Questions that affect our society are multifaceted and it is easy to reach the limits of what is possible in research. Through my involvement in various qualitative and quantitative projects in recent years, I know the hurdles that researchers face when it comes to thinking about social aspects in all their diversity. One often has the feeling that one does not do justice to every aspect and every person. Through my personal experience as a trans person, I know it too well to start a survey to then find out: Wait, nobody really thought of me when this was designed...

 

It doesn't have to be like this! Gender and sexual diversity do not have to cause any headaches when it comes to designing inclusive research. I am happy to support you in your project right from the start. How do I ask the right questions? Which projects, organizations and persons should I contact if I want to set up an inclusive and community participatory research project? Please do not hesitate to contact me and we will find a solution for your concerns!

 

Funding Applications

No matter if you are a small group that just needs some help about receiving funds to print the next flyers or if you are an organization that works on a yearly budget of $500.000+. I can help you to write stronger and more successful grant applications or to rethink your fundraising strategy!

Accessing to money in the field of human rights, is highly competetive, but through many years of experience in applying for funding and numerous written academic works, I know what it means to write concise and effective. Additionally, I have gathered much information about potential donors (worldwide) and what might be a proper way to approach funding opportunities. I have not only taught academic writing to students at university, I have also given multiple workshops on how to successfully apply for grants. 

Besides my experience in effective writing, I was reviewing grant applications for 3 years for the International Trans Fund. As a member of the Grant Making Panel, I got to know what is needed for a successful application. Throughout these years as a reviewer, I got to see what are the dos and don'ts, when it comes to grant applications.
