About the job

Organizational Overview

Women for Women International works in some of the most dangerous places to be a woman. We serve women survivors of war in conflict and post-conflict areas around the world in 8 countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, Eastern Congo, and Northern Nigeria. Our core belief is that stronger women build stronger nations; and with access to knowledge, resources, and a support network, a woman rebuilds her life and improves her community.
Our model works and we have the data to prove it. In our 26-year history, Women for Women International has reached over half a million women. The women we work with across 3 continents earn just $0.81 a day when we enroll them. At graduation, it’s $2.11, nearly tripled.
Our impact goes beyond income. The number of women who say at least one household member went to sleep hungry in the last four weeks has gone from 18% to 5%. And more women say they speak out against women’s abuse: 26% report having publicly spoken in the last 6 months against physically abusing women.
When women have the right tools, they realize the power within themselves to transform their lives, their families, their communities, and finally their entire nations.

LingFest is a program of online linguistics events aimed at a general audience, taking place between Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, May 2, 2021. Just as a fringe festival compiles a list of independently-organized events on a particular theme, LingFest is an excuse for linguistics communicators to organize an online event, a way for fans to meet fellow linguistics enthusiasts (use #lingfest), and a handy way to find out about more lingcommers who you might want to start following! Find out about #LingFest

Assistant Director of Training & Diversity – Stanford U.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) is seeking an Assistant Director of Training & Diversity with experience in curriculum development and evaluation as well as a commitment to developing effective resources that empower postdocs, especially those from underrepresented groups, to thrive within academia and beyond. The successful candidate will be independent, curious, collaborative, and creative, with a knack for learning and understanding stakeholder needs, framing key questions, and a penchant to use evaluative methods for continuous improvement. This position is a critical part of the OPA team, working as an individual contributor to design and deliver curriculum focused on the most vulnerable points of postdoctoral training: recruitment, early engagement, and career transition. A person with a deep commitment to developing inclusive programs, creating a welcoming community, and robust evaluation of new curriculum and programs will have the tools and context necessary to define and influence postdoctoral training at Stanford, and in turn to influence the future academic workforce.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is a fast-moving, agile office that administers and supports the more than 2400 postdocs on campus. OPA is one of the leading postdoc offices in the country and seeks to provide the best service to its constituents – the postdocs, faculty, and departmental administrators. Through close working relationships throughout the University, the Assistant Director of Training & Diversity will work independently to provide a clear and deep understanding of trends and issues in postdoctoral training.

The Assistant Director of Training & Diversity will play a key role in the continued development and implementation of our strategic vision for the importance and breadth of professional development available to postdocs. They will lead and work closely with the rest of the programs team to develop, implement, and analyze needs assessments, best practices research, and program evaluation mechanisms in order to devise, implement, and support new approaches to postdoctoral training, recruitment, retention, and advancement. They will develop new curriculum, establish partnerships across the university, and bring in outside experts to develop or provide curriculum to support the strategic vision for postdoctoral training broadly and OPA’s suite of diversity and training programs and initiatives across the programs team. They will also work with the programs team to co-develop and engage in cross-team collaboration on program evaluation, program communications, marketing strategy, and partnerships to support our team’s goals and values.

The Assistant Director of Training & Diversity will serve as a subject matter expert in DEI, providing leadership within OPA, developing curriculum to further a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and serving as an advisor and consultant to our constituents as we champion best practices for recruiting, training, and supporting diverse postdocs in thriving at Stanford. They may serve on committees and working groups representing postdocs’ needs especially in the DEI space. They will also have opportunities to develop relationships with and provide mentorship and coaching support to postdocs as needed, especially with a DEI focus.

This role will also develop curriculum for the NSF Research Universities Alliance (RUA), a 9-institution alliance among Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, CalTech, U Washington, UT Austin, U Michigan, Georgia Tech, and Harvard, to support URM postdocs in non-bioscience STEM fields interested in careers in academia. OPA serves as RUA’s experts on postdoctoral recruitment and training, so this role will work with the Director of Programs & Outreach and Associate Dean to develop a suite of programs to support underrepresented postdocs interested in careers in academia, focused especially on the intervention points of recruitment and onboarding, establishing and promoting belonging, and career transition. The training developed will both support postdocs at Stanford broadly as well as the corresponding populations at each of our partner institutions.

The OPA programs team is fast-paced, highly mission-driven, and takes great pride in our competence, creativity, and our service-mindedness. Candidates should be highly organized self-starters, comfortable with autonomy, and embrace opportunities to tackle new problems and challenges as part of our dynamic team.
