In May 2019, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) created a new position of Vice President and Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. The responsibilities of this role are to oversee MGH’s efforts focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion across all four pillars of its mission—clinical care, research, training, and community health. The role will also serve to foster a welcoming and respectful environment for all employees at MGH, and patients at MGH. The Executive Assistant will have the exciting opportunity to join the team leading this effort as it begins. They will report to the Vice President, as well as the new Administrative Director of this effort, and provide support to them and to the entire portfolio of work in this area. Given the Vice President position has just been developed, new governance and additional reporting relationships are being assigned in the months to come. To date, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, the Disparities Solutions Center, the Community Access, Recruitment and Engagement Research Center, and representatives from Patient Care Services report to the Vice President. The Executive Assistant will serve as the coordinator and key link between these leaders, this work, and the broader MGH community. The ideal candidate will be able to work effectively and professionally in collaboration with diverse groups of people, including leaders at MGH, and will demonstrate strong organizational, administrative, and oral and written communication skills. They will also have lived experience, past experience, or a passion for work related to diversity, equity and inclusion.
