  • Establish and directs the mission and purpose of the employee resource groups (ERGs) (we told you above, we are all about networking with people).

  • Review and develops policies that align and support the vision and mission of the DE&I plan and the company’s values (hmmm…the operative word being policies, somebody’s got to do it).

  • Navigate sensitive and confidential DE&I issues with care, empathy and insightfulness (this can be challenging, but we have a high EQ and will support you)

  • Manage junior level fellowship program (it doesn’t get better than this).
