Our client seeks a collaborative, critical thinker with well-developed communication and project leadership skills to join its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Culture Group, reporting to their Senior Manager, DEI.

You’ll also help develop tools and maintain metrics to measure the impact and expenses of our diversity efforts in a rigorous, data-driven way, and ensure the DEI sections of our internal and external websites are regularly and appropriately updated.
