The opportunity

InclusionVentures is growing! We are hiring an Inclusion Coordinator, a key new role that will report directly to the CEO and will support the team in all things inclusion. Your work will be critical to making it all happen. As the lead “success enabler” and operations person for the company, you’ll also get to learn firsthand about business development, the latest in inclusion, and the behind-the-scenes strategy of client work. This is a compelling role for someone who gets things done, who is a creative problem solver and a critical thinker, who is driven to support a busy CEO, and who is deeply passionate about making inclusion the norm.

This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a growing company. This role has the opportunity for advancement and for developing skills. We understand that some applicants will be stronger in certain elements of this role than in other areas. Don’t let that stop you from applying! We are committed to your development and growth.

Your charge

In this role, you will have the ability to impact every aspect of our work.

  • Support ongoing business development as the company grows. You’ll write, edit, and format proposals, manage our CRM, and coordinate next steps after business development calls. You’ll also manage our social media and act a point of contact for potential clients. You may represent InclusionVentures at industry events from time-to-time.  
  • Drive all things client operations for the company. You’ll help drive client work by attending a variety of meetings and leading next steps.  In addition, you’ll manage all operations and logistics for all of InclusionVentures’ services, including client engagements and events (e.g., Institute).
  • Drive business operations. You’ll partner with the Executive Assistant to leverage, maintain, and improve systems and processes that make our company’s operations more efficient.  You’ll be a champion of streamlined processes.
  • Bolster the inclusion knowledge base for the company. You’ll lead the charge on tracking, highlighting and organizing findings, studies, and trends related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. You’ll turn what you learn into useable content for our engagements.
  • Given that we’re a small team and this is an operations role, you’ll also support the work of our full team in a variety of ways on a regular basis.
