Job Opportunity - Assistant Director of Supplier Diversity
OMWBE is looking for a highly motivated leader who brings their all to work every day to serve as the Assistant Director of Supplier Diversity (successful supplier diversity programs include proactive processes that show commitment to provide diverse businesses equal access to opportunities). We have a high-productivity and high-engagement culture for those willing to step out of their comfort zone. If you are ready to make a difference in the quality of lives for Washingtonians, we are the place for you.
This role is responsible for carrying out the state-wide supplier diversity program, designed to increase inclusion of OMWBE certified businesses in public spending. This position makes enterprise recommendations that influence the complex and unprecedented issues involving equitable practices designed to provide maximum practicable opportunities for BIPOC, women and other disadvantaged persons.
The leader selected for this role will initially work in a telework setting, attending all meetings virtually, and once restrictions are lifted, will be required to attend in-person monthly meetings for Tabor 100, NAMC, and other stakeholders. As the leader directly responsible for partnering with all state agencies and educational institutions, you will also be expected to meet with point of contacts on a regular basis (the majority of headquarters/main offices are located in Thurston County; there may be some travel and overnight stays when meeting with institutes of higher learning throughout the state).
The Assistant Director of Supplier Diversity will supervise current staff at the agency along with additional positions that may be funded by the legislative process and be actively involved in the strategic direction of the agency.
If you are ready to make an immediate impact in the state of Washington with regards to how agencies and educational institutions create a more diverse and inclusive spend with certified minority, women and veteran owned businesses, please apply now!
