Employee Resource Group Lead, People Operations

Google Inc. San Francisco , CA 94118

Posted 1 week ago

People Ops is always looking to make the experience of work better and more meaningful for Googlers. But innovating (and operating!) is increasingly complex when Googlers work in more than 50 countries, each with its own unique practices and regulations. The Diversity, Integrity & Governance team works to make sure we not only do what's required by law, but that we continue to raise the bar and do what's right for Googlers all over the globe. From supporting LGBT rights to extending parental leave benefits, we aspire to do the right thing in every part of the world: to be fair and inclusive, disciplined but not rigid, and consistent but not bureaucratic.

The Inclusion team helps drive Google's goal to progress a more representative and inclusive workforce. In partnership with leaders, communities and our robust Employee Resource Group (ERG) networks, we serve in an advisory capacity as a team of subject-matter experts and advisors to the business. ERGs at Google represent Googler's globally, playing a critical role of managing scaled programs and partnerships with Googler led communities (ERGs), executive sponsors and external community partners.

As a Lead for the Employee Resource Group, you will be responsible for directing ERG leadership, advising ERG Executive Sponsors, and ensuring the ERGs function at high capacity with measurable impact. You'll join a team of Community Leads and be positioned as an internal leader to evaluate programs, communicate progress and connect communities, leaders and partners to Google resources.

Great just isn't good enough for our People Operations team (you probably know us better as "Human Resources"). Made up of equal parts HR professionals, former consultants, and analysts, we're the advocates of Google's colorful culture. In People Ops, we "find them, grow them, and keep them". We bring the world's most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent, or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent practical experience.

  • 12 years of experience in Human Resources or a related function, with experience working with employee communities/resource groups.

  • A team player, with demonstrated influencing and relationship building skills with clients, partners, and people with various backgrounds and cultures.

  • Effective problem-solving and analytical skills, with a high degree of rigor, strategic mindset and curiosity.

  • Provide strategic guidance and oversight to Employee Resource Groups and their leaders, and build relationships with ERG Executive Sponsors and other key stakeholders to ensure understanding and alignment of Google's diversity, equity and inclusion strategy.

  • Oversee the development and management of the ERG membership database, performance scorecard and provide other metrics as needed to provide relevant data, analysis and recommendations.

  • Create a partnership model and system that better scales the impact of ERGs and Community Leads to handle ERG-related requests.
