Beyond 6 months in Role: You will take more ownership of L&D DIBs programs and continue to facilitate in the inclusive leadership program. Your ongoing work will focus on informing and executing L&D’s approach to directly developing and growing employees from underrepresented backgrounds, including the infusion of DIBs into L&D programs. Through strong relationships with L&D teammates and the central DIBs team, you will scale, adapt, and create learning opportunities that allow underrepresented talent to thrive.
