SCHOOL/UNIT DESCRIPTION:

The Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) is a newly formed and rapidly growing institute within the Dean of Research. As an independent research institute, HAI’s mission is to advance AI research, education, policy and practice to improve the human condition. What’s unique about HAI is that it balances diverse expertise and integration of AI across human-centered systems and applications in a setting that could only be offered by Stanford University. In realizing our mission, our staff are critical to supporting our organization’s goals and enabling Stanford faculty and students to accomplish its mission conducting cutting-edge research with the objective of formulating innovative solutions to global challenges. Together we’re helping build the future of AI.

 

Our Vice Provost/Dean of Research (VPDoR) Diversity Journey:

  • We create a hub of innovation through the power of diversity of disciplines and people.
  • We provide equitable access and opportunity to all members of the community in order to do their best work, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
  • We listen to and value all colleagues who bring diverse perspectives to the advancement and development of a respectful community.
  • We promote a culture of belonging, equity, and safety.
  • We embed these values in excellence of education, research, and operation.

 

POSITION SUMMARY:

HAI is excited to offer a new Program Manager position for its expanding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) education initiatives. The ideal candidate is an experienced and dynamic leader who can help create DEI-focused educational programming across the lifelong learning spectrum, serving audiences within HAI’s education mission set (K-12-, university-, professional-, executive-, government-, and civil society populations, as well as the general public), while simultaneously helping ensure best DEI practices across the entirety of HAI’s education activities. This position reports to the HAI Director of Education and will work in close coordination with HAI’s Education team as well as HAI’s DEI Committee to help HAI carry out its stated values (https://hai.stanford.edu/about/values) through education programming and other DEI initiatives across the Institute.

 

The Program Manager will ensure the success of HAI’s current DEI educational activities as well as develop future DEI initiatives, both within HAI itself and in close collaboration with partners internal and external to Stanford. For context, example current HAI DEI education initiatives include: programming around diversifying the AI leadership pipeline (pre-college through college), educating members of tech boards of directors from underrepresented populations, offering Stanford research opportunities to students from under-resourced universities, supporting DEI graduate fellowships (including in race and technology), working with postdoctoral/ research positions across the University on DEI-related research and curriculum development, advising Stanford grant writers on potential DEI educational opportunities related to their research interests, DEI interests around technology and the arts, and encompass disciplinary interests across the University. Future initiatives may be in similar veins or develop exciting new areas of educational programming. The ideal candidate will have exceptional communication skills, able to work across complex organizations and audience sets as required by the position’s DEI responsibilities and HAI’s mission and values. 

 

We are hiring one (1), full time (100% FTE), fixed term position for two (2) years, which is renewable based on programmatic need and funding.

 

 CORE DUTIES:

  • Lead the planning and operations for programs or functions that have significant business, regulatory and/or technical challenges requiring subject matter expertise.
    • Lead the design and manage the success of HAI’s DEI-related education programs, in close collaboration with HAI Leadership and key stakeholders.
  • Evaluate programs or functions, policies, and procedures. Identify issues and develop alternative solutions which may include changes to programs, policies, and procedures.           
    • Lead the assessment of HAI’s DEI-related activities, in close collaboration with HAI Leadership and key stakeholders.
  • Review and analyze (DEI and education program) trends to advise and develop recommendations to achieve or modify the goals of the program or function.
  • Represent the program or function within the department, unit, or school by committing resources and provide information and/or training. Represent the program or function at the university level and/or to external/internal stakeholders and constituencies.
  • Manage and contribute to the development of outreach strategy that may include relationship development, communications, and compliance.
  • Develop and/or oversee related budgets; manage finances including monitoring, analyzing, forecasting, and reporting.
  • Assess training needs and develop associated training.
