The CDPO is a senior-level management position reporting directly to the Williams Director and serving as a member of the Museum’s Executive Team. The CDPO champions the importance and value of a diverse and inclusive environment, working with the Penn Museum Diversity Committee, of which they will be the leading member, across institutional initiatives related to people and programs.

The CDPO will also collaborate with Museum stakeholders to assess the need for, and recommend training initiatives on, cultural competency, gender differences, disability, sexual harassment, and other topics designed to increase awareness and support of equity and inclusion values, and maintaining compliance with University policy.
The CDPO will work closely with the Executive team, Penn’s central HR team, and all department leaders in the Museum to integrate DEIA into all people activities and programs. The CDPO will consult on the design, implementation, and facilitation of DEI education and training programs, talent acquisition initiatives, and performance assessment efforts that support professional development opportunities and reduce bias. The person in this role will challenge existing and planned programs and exhibitions to ensure an inclusive, equitable, and fully accessible employee and visitor experience.
Working with Museum staff already engaged in community relations, the CDPO will recruit and lead the Penn Museum Community Advisory Board and coordinate Museum-wide efforts to ensure that gallery and programmatic offerings are created in community-centric partnership.

The CDPO will provide open, transparent communication and partnership across the Museum’s departments and leadership teams to support a culture of accountability, service, inclusion, equity, and high performance. Working with Penn’s central HR team, Penn’s Office of Government and Community Affairs, Penn’s Chief Diversity Officer, the Penn Museum Diversity Committee and hiring managers in the Museum, lead efforts to establish a pipeline of diverse talent through enhanced sourcing, onboarding, learning and development, succession, and retention programs. The CDPO will manage the development, sourcing, and execution of crucial professional development offerings for the Museum’s staff to encourage professional growth, succession planning, engagement, and competitiveness in the market. This person will manage the revitalization of the Museum’s active role in providing paid internships for high school and college students in the region, and will also work with those Museum staff who work with student groups to help to ensure that a culture for DEIA is advanced. The CDPO will provide support for the Museum’s many talented and committed volunteers and look to build a larger, more diverse, and more resilient volunteer pool, collaborating with Museum staff who are already engaged in these efforts.Job Description
