Washington State Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Training Manager

Washington State Department of Enterprise Services

Are you looking for a job where you will make a huge impact toward equity and inclusion in the State of Washington? We are looking for an experienced leader in the field of DEI training, who will manage a program to build and deliver training for the state’s workforce. We have a bold vision of developing Washington State Government into an anti-racist and equity-driven institution, where every state employee working across the public sector -  whether in the field of social services, corrections, transportation, environment, etc. - has the knowledge and skills to serve Washingtonians with respect and inclusion and to achieve social and racial justice.

The DEI Training Manager will lead a team of learning professionals to develop and deliver WA State government’s foundational diversity, equity, and inclusion training program. You’ll use your skills in project management, team coaching, and curriculum development to help finalize the creation of training modules and implement this multi-day instructor-led training program. You’ll occasionally be in the classroom (currently virtual due to COVID), and will primarily sustain the program through supporting and developing your team of trainers, by providing quality assurance and continuous process improvement, and through close partnership with key stakeholders and leaders from across state government. This work is critical and complex, requiring experience and expertise in several areas.


Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Access and Trauma-Informed Care


Diversity, equity, inclusion, and access (DEIA) and trauma-informed care (TIC) are core values at Wellspring Family Services. Family homelessness is heavily driven by historic and systemic forms of discrimination, including racism, sexism, disability and LGBTQ discrimination. Generations of trauma and adverse childhood experiences leave families prone to further negative impact through re-traumatization, often unintentionally compounded through case managers and other care givers. 

Additionally, Wellspring is proud of the diversity of our staff and the lived experience they bring to their work. We strive to create a supportive, equitable, inclusive and positive environment that works to address the potential re-traumatization that staff often face when working to help families in crisis.  

We are seeking a leader to help the organization guide our efforts in both DEIA and TIC work. The Director of DEIA & TIC will be responsible for providing expertise and direction to help staff at all levels more effectively understand, address, and work to unravel the impacts of trauma and historical and systemic discrimination on the communities we serve. The Director of DEIA & TIC will also be responsible for developing strategies and programs to support diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in our work environment and to address the impacts of primary and secondary trauma experienced by our employees.
