You will work with the Senior Director, Employee Experience and DE&I to develop multi-channel employee communications with a focus on driving transparency and clarity. As a DEI practitioner, you will bring your experience and passion to your work in order to ensure that we are fostering a culture of community, diversity, inclusion, and belonging, while supporting the next generation of leaders and employees through our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). 

In this role, you can expect to spend about 40% of your time on communications and 60% on DEI, though the balance may vary week-to-week.

  • Produce our weekly employee newsletter, managing all aspects of editorial planning, content creation, design, writing, editing, and delivery
  • Innovate processes to improve the employee experience, e.g. new employee welcomes, milestone celebrations, recognition

  • Establish metrics to track the effectiveness of ERG programs and DEI initiatives
  • Manage the DEI events and communications calendar, collaborating with teams across the company to create impactful content
  • Participate in the planning and execution of philanthropy events, campaigns, and initiatives, coordinating logistics, communication efforts, and stakeholder engagement to ensure successful implementation
  • Collaborate with the Learning and Development team to recommend, develop, facilitate, and track DEI content to provide training and educational resources that foster a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion

 What we’re looking for:

  • 3-5 years of relevant experience in HR communications or a related field, including diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, Employee Resource Group (ERG) oversight, and preferably experience in philanthropy program management
  • Proven ability to develop, manage, and execute communications plans for HR  and broader organizational needs as well as DEI-specific initiatives
  • Exceptional writing skills, capable of crafting a wide range of employee communications
  • Familiarity using a variety of communication tools, software, and vehicles to ensure impactful communications
  • Comfortable working in a dynamic environment with changing priorities, demonstrating adaptability and resilience in managing multiple projects simultaneously
  • Strong project management acumen; detail-oriented approach to planning and execution, ensuring accuracy, timeliness, and effectiveness of initiatives
  • Eagerness to grow and develop leadership skills within the People/HR space, with a focus on driving employee engagement, promoting a positive workplace culture, and advancing strategic DEI goals
  • In lieu of a college degree, work experience and a portfolio demonstrating successful communication outcomes, including ERG program management and DEI-related efforts, will be considered
  • Preference for someone based in the SF Bay Area, Austin, or New York
