  • Partner with People Operations and our employee-led Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Groups to run weekly DEI/Culture onboarding for all new joiners
  • Provide structure and support for our four (4) DIB Groups (Gender, LGBTQ+, Racial Equity, Wellbeing), aligning their strategies to the overall DEI strategy and programs to deliver even greater impact
  • Drive a consistent approach to inclusion and belonging efforts across DIB Groups, including change management, succession planning, budget allocation, event planning, goal setting, membership, and creation of new DIB Groups.
  • Work with external vendors to provide subject matter expertise, best practices and development for DIB Group Leads and Committee members
  • Manage strategic internal initiatives (diversity data collection and reporting) and intersectional programs (i.e. mentorship or sponsorship programs)
