Ten Thousand Coffees (10KC) builds the tools and technology for talent leaders to launch the best informal development programs - mentoring, sponsorship, coaching, learning beyond the classroom - we do it all.

Alongside the best technology, we strive to offer industry-leading content and programming to create an exceptional experience for our customers, program teams and end users. This role will own our POV on solutions to drive our customers’ business objectives for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Think of Ten Thousand Coffees as the Learning Management System for informal development. This role is to produce the programming that guides users when they meet 1:1 with a mentor/mentee, coach, peer buddy or in small groups with company leaders for a fireside chat, career conversation, or to activate important learning concepts like psychological safety and inclusive leadership and navigating difficult conversations.

What you will do:

Act as the DE&I subject matter expert to our customers and our team

  • Speak to customers to understand their DE&I objectives and challenges to inform your Solutions roadmap
  • In partnership with Customer Success, act as a SME and advisor to customers as they implement DE&I-focused programming via the Ten Thousand Coffees platform
  • Support customer facing teams in building knowledge of DE&I concepts and how to speak to customers about them

Identify, plan and write new programming

  • Identify strategic opportunities for D&I programming through market research and direct conversations with our prospects and customers
  • Write conversation guides and templates for our clients to deploy to their employees on themes like mentorship and sponsorship
  • Write blog posts and supporting resources for employees to build networking and mentorship competencies, and to use as pre-reads for their development programming

Establish partnerships with thought partners

  • Identify subject matter experts to work with on specific content topics
  • Develop partnership scopes, including events and co-promotion strategies
  • Interview experts to produce compelling content for programming

Support go-to-market strategies for partnership launches and campaigns

  • Once programming is ready, support go-to-market strategy to promote it to prospects and current customers
  • See your content through from writing to distribution, measuring the impact and outcomes of the content
  • Reporting on KPIs, reflecting on your approach, and constantly iterating and refining the process

What you bring:

  • 5+ years of experience in a consulting or in-house role, focused on Human Capital, People, Talent or L&D strategy with at least 2+ years being directly accountable for DE&I strategies.
  • You must be passionate about DE&I and have direct work experience in the space so you can hit the ground running. We’re looking for someone with the ability to reapply best practices from past experience building and distributing programming.
  • Get just as excited about how to get distribution and implementation of your work as writing the content itself.
  • Comfortable working end-to-end from strategy to execution to ROI. You should be data-driven and comfortable speaking to the business outcomes and ROI of your work.
  • You nerd out about customer and market insights, with a high degree of empathy for customers and users.
  • Love writing and have a knack for turning your expertise into compelling content.
  • Are agile and adaptable — we’re in a phase of growth and rapid learning
  • Do your best work when you’re given some autonomy—you enjoy uncovering a challenge and finding your own ways to solve it.
