New Position in the Office of Student Affairs, Engineering, Stanford University

Director of Diversity and Inclusion for the School of Engineering, 100%, Exempt, Continuing
School of Engineering, Office of Student Affairs
The School of Engineering at Stanford University is excited to offer a new leadership position for its expanding diversity initiatives, the Director of Diversity and Inclusion. We seek an experienced and energetic leader, one who will thrive on the opportunity to partner with existing engineering diversity program staff to meet the challenges articulated in the SoE Future White Paper on Diversity ( Programs which have been developed by our continuing staff ( have had a tremendous impact at the undergraduate level and have started to improve outcomes at the graduate level. With increased resources, however, there can be improvement at all levels, with the greatest opportunities for new initiatives at the graduate and postdoctoral level.
This new leadership position will help us build momentum as SoE gains traction with private and industrial donors to “double down” and advance commitment beyond our current effort by an order of magnitude. The ideal candidate will be a diversity and inclusion strategist who assesses and monitors the SoE community climate and leads bold new diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, including programs and trainings for the SoE community that promote a culture of respect. These initiatives will shepherd forward a critical culture change currently underway within Stanford’s School of Engineering to meet the twin goals of having Stanford engineers at all levels experience the success that comes from working with diverse teams and having Stanford engineering students experience an environment inclusive of all aspects of their personal identities (race/ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality, disability status, first-generation status, socioeconomic level, and broader diversity). Our goal is for Stanford engineering to become the go-to destination for students of all backgrounds with interest in success through excellence and diversity.
