About the position: The Small Bureau Equity Manager is a change agent for the integration of equity best practices within assigned small bureaus. The position is responsible for understanding and analyzing client bureaus and providing leadership teams and staff help with identifying areas of improvement and assisting in the creation of work plans to implement equity best practices. The Small Bureau Equity Manager may play key roles in designing, advising and leading trainings, strategic planning, and the development of effective reporting and performance measurement tools as they relate to equity. The position influences and collaborates with bureau leadership and staff with efficiency and flexibility.
The City has several small bureaus that primarily provide citywide and internally facing services. These bureaus are uniquely positioned to significantly impact processes and systems that affect the City’s ability to integrate equity and achieve needed and desired equitable outcomes. However, these same bureaus have significant service demands, few staff and limited budget flexibility to absorb the dedicated, focused equity work needed to achieve the City’s goals. The Small Bureau Equity Manager helps address this deficiency for these bureaus by establishing an equity subject matter expert at the Office of Equity and Human Rights who acts as a dedicated ‘consultant’ for agreed upon assignments and/or durations to small bureaus in need.
