Stripe exists to expand internet commerce and allow greater access to the online economy. We believe that talent is distributed equally but opportunity is not, and we aim to break down barriers to access by making it easy for new businesses and nonprofits to get started and equipping them with the tools they need to grow.

We believe that having a warm, inclusive environment at Stripe and equitable people programs and practices are essential for Stripes to build the best products and foster the greatest economic opportunity for users. We’re committed to doing this, and to help us, we are looking for an Education and Enablement Lead to join the Organizational Development team. This person will run programs related to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, as well as other development programs. We are actively seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Responsibilities include:

  • Design and execute a strategy to scale our employee resource group program for Stripes across the globe. 
  • Organize, facilitate, and moderate org-wide events that educate and create community around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Coach our Global Community Leads to help them grow in their capacity in a leadership role.
  • Create and drive DEI-related and antiracism education and enablement for various subgroups: leadership, HRBPs, People Team leadership, and all Stripes.
  • Build and run scalable development programs including mentorship, sponsorship and rotational programs in partnership with other People teams.
  • Observe and measure the efficacy of our programs and leveraging analytical rigor to guide decisions.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Expertise in learning design and project/program management, especially in initiatives that impact large groups and require cross-functional partnership
  • Deep skill in facilitating, using practices/techniques that maximize psychological safety, trust, and growth in groups. Trauma-informed and skilled in mediating and facilitating difficult conversations.
  • Experience rolling out educational opportunities that led to behavior change, especially around challenging topics like racism, classism, sexism, and harassment.
  • Experience educating a diverse range of stakeholders on equity-related topics and organizational approaches, including those who are just starting their learning journey.
  • Experience working on justice-related, cross-functional organizing initiatives with demonstrated evidence of impact and progress in professional or public settings.
  • Resilience, empathy, and determination in advocating for underrepresented groups.
  • Experience working within or in close partnership with a People function/team in a medium-to-large organization.
  • Expertise studying or navigating complex social and political systems that affect individual and group participation in professional and civic life.
  • Experience working on justice-related, cross-functional organizing initiatives with demonstrated evidence of impact and progress in professional or public settings.
  • The ability to draw energy and support from a wide variety of distinct stakeholders to get things done, create leverage, and mobilize internal advocates.
  • The resilience, empathy, and determination to advocate for underrepresented groups.
  • Knowledge of how to use data to influence program strategy and tell compelling stories about organizational effectiveness and impact.
  • Experience working within or in close partnership with a People function/team in a medium-to-large organization
  • 10+ years of relevant experience preferably in academic and business settings

It would also be great if you have:

  • Academic training and research experience in relevant humanities or social sciences fields 
  • Academic training and/or lived experience of diversity, equity, and inclusion topics outside the United States

It’s not expected that any single candidate would have expertise across all of these areas. We’re looking for candidates who are particularly strong in building effective education programs for adults and have a depth of knowledge in DEI.

You should include these in your application: 

  • A resume and/or LinkedIn profile.
  • Other information or materials you think would best help us understand your background and achievements to date.
