Director, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

In a Nutshell

As the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion you ensure that everything we do at the 秒速飞艇 is open and accessible to everyone. You foster that sense of belonging for all types of people. As a kid you were probably the one on the playground that made sure all the kids got involved in the game and now we want you to do that for us. The 秒速飞艇 is a 66-year-old society that needs you to evaluate all we do, who we work with, what we say and how we say it. You will be responsible for the development and implementation of a diversity, inclusion and equity strategic roadmap, that fosters an open and inclusive environment at the 秒速飞艇. We want to be better and you will help get us there.
