City of Sacramento, Office of Diversity & Equity is seeking a highly motivated Strategic Workforce Equity Analyst who brings an intersectional and intercultural approach to equitable and inclusive organizational practices, policies, and strategies in collaboration with others in a diverse working environment. This position will report to the Diversity & Equity Manager and will support city departments internally and work closely with City HR Department.

The City of Sacramento is in the early stages of implementing its RGEAP and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts. We seek a Strategic Workforce Equity Analyst to implement our Race & Gender Equity Action Plan – the blueprint for advancing the City’s commitment to racial and gender equity across the City’s 15 departments.  Our vision is to Reflect the City to better Serve the City.


In this internally-facing role, you will work as both consultant and change agent to build capacity in leadership, staff, stakeholders (internal and external) and department equity teams to advance equity in policies, practices, and procedures.

The first few years of work include but is not limited to:

  • Develop and implement department specific DEI education plans to complete the RGEAP.
  • Support accountability and performance metrics of the RGEAP, including aligning with citywide impact evaluation practices.
  • Develop and implement a robust internal communication strategy that engages staff and managers in the implementation of the RGEAP.
  • Recruit, coordinate, and provide guidance for department equity teams.
  • Present information about hiring and recruitment services, program, and opportunities at meetings and events.
  • Research, develop, and implement engagement activities and outreach events with key stakeholders.
  • Prepare various communications and engagement materials, content for websites, presentations, speeches, traditional and social media, and other channels as appropriate.
  • Compile and review feedback, analyze and interpret data, and prepare reports on strategic endeavors, capacity building activities, data collection including, but not limited to polls, and surveys.
  • Collaborate with staff from City departments, community partners, and organizations to promote community awareness and engagement related to City of Sacramento services and DEI initiatives.
  • Process invoices, work with outside vendors, and manages contract for compliance.


The desired candidate is a people-centered person, has a growth mindset in engaging and learning with diverse groups of staff and community members. Having a broad understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion as both process and outcome and comfortable learning and addressing areas of systemic marginalization with purposeful strategic intervention while thriving in a fast-paced, collaborative environment is essential. This person will have experience leading complex projects, programs, or initiatives using an equity lens. This person must have a strong willingness to engage in developing capacity building and learning of the historic inequities in America and the ways that institutional racism, racial disparities play out in today’s government structures. With that analysis, experience understanding how institutions and organizations operate so they can effectively work within bureaucracies to influence and create change.


This person will also build and maintain strong relationships with different individuals and work teams, develop creative and collaborative solutions, and rebuild internal processes and structures to bring the department’s RGEAP to life.


Additionally, this person will be organized and have a desire to work with data information and systems that measures, assesses, and reports gaps of inequity for reporting and recommending strategic intervention. We are looking for a strategic and creative person who can think outside the box. Many City projects are high-profile and complex and require simplification to ensure shared understanding.  This person is able to apply an equity-centered approach to change management, difficult situations, and strategic planning. An independent and self-directed individual who is passionate for change, go-getter, flexible and adaptable to changing direction and priorities and has a positive attitude will excel in this position.
