The Network for Public Health Law (Network) works to improve the health of communities across the United States by helping those who grapple with the legal complexities of modern public health. The Network provides research, analysis, strategic consultation and training in the use of law and policy to protect and promote health, and advance health equity. The Network comprises a National Office co-located with our Northern Region in Edina, Minnesota; an Eastern Region Office located at the University of Maryland, Carey School of Law; a Southeastern Region Office located at University of North Carolina, Gillings School of Global Health; a Mid-States Region Office located at the University of Michigan, School of Public Health; and a Western Region Office located at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. We have 28 staff members, 19 of who are attorneys.
The Network seeks a highly competent, ethical, and experienced diversity, equity, and inclusion consultant to conduct an organizational assessment that provides a better understanding of current policies, culture, and practices with regard to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This assessment will 1) identify strengths and weaknesses, 2) recommend appropriate actions, and 3) inform staff dialogues regarding these issues. The ultimate objective of this work is to nurture an environment that is welcoming to a diverse staff.
