Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at UW-Madison SMPH

The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) invites applications and nominations for the position of Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer (CDIO). This is not a faculty position, but we encourage HELI alumni to share this opportunity widely through their professional networks!

While advancing diversity, equity and inclusion is the responsibility of all members of the SMPH, the CDIO will oversee and promote effective collaborative efforts at a school-wide level. The successful candidate will hold a Master’s degree in a field related to the position. The incumbent must have at least six years of professional and relevant work experience with excellent interpersonal and oral/written communication skills that foster trust, credibility and understanding. The candidate must have the ability to navigate complex academic and healthcare communities, building bridges and strong collaborative relationships with a range of internal and external stakeholders. The applicant must have the ability to interact and influence at all levels of an organization and to work collaboratively across functions and departments toward shared objectives. A background in grant-writing experience is preferred.

Full position details and application instructions are included in the position flyer and online here:

All applications received by the due date of January 5, 2020 will be given full and equal consideration.   

Questions may be directed to Kim McFarlane at and (608) 263-1130.

Thank you to HELI 2019 Alumna Farah Kaiksow, MD, MPP, for sharing with HELI!
