The chief diversity officer develops, implements, and monitors enterprise-wide programs that promote the hiring of employees with diverse cultural and educational experiences. This hiring kit includes a job description, sample interview questions, and a basic want ad you can use for your candidate recruitment search.

From the job description:

Introduction
The success of any business is dependent, first and foremost, on its employees. No matter how advanced and sophisticated the deployed technology may be in your enterprise, technology's primary purpose is still to serve as a catalyst for increased employee productivity. The talent and experience each employee brings to an enterprise, and the enterprise’s ability to tap that talent, is what will ultimately determine success.

This simple fact is why successful enterprises of all sizes embrace and encourage the development of a diverse workforce. Diversity can generate solutions to problems that reflect different perspectives, different levels of experience, and, most important, different thinking. Stagnant thinking leads to a lack of innovation, which leads to inertia, which leads to enterprise irrelevance. Workforce diversity will help avert that potential death spiral.

In many cases, enterprises will look to hire a chief diversity officer—a specialist who will search for ways to increase and develop a diverse workforce. They will develop, implement, and monitor enterprise-wide programs that promote the hiring of employees with varied cultural and educational experiences. They will also be responsible for developing and incorporating inclusion initiatives, such as organization-wide diversity training and multicultural events.
