OVERVIEW

Consumer Reports has a rich history of fighting for a fair, just, and equitable marketplace, and of striving to sustain this legacy in everything the organization does as a social enterprise. As part of the necessary national conversation on race and justice, CR's leaders have reflected on the state of its own culture and the sense of belonging felt by everyone who works for-and with-CR. Through collective dialogue, staff and managers have learned that, when it comes to enriching how people experience diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as workers and consumers, we have made great strides along the way, and that there is more work to do.

CR's new Associate Director of DEI Programs will be a critical supporter of the work ahead by 1) working with the Chief DEI Officer to assess where might there be opportunities to adjust principles, policies, and practices in line with the DEI mission and vision, and 2) collaborating with several internal stakeholders and external partners to support generative action planning and execution that make a positive difference in people's experiences and in the enterprise impact.

Under our CRFlex program, this is eligible for remote work!
