Tips for Writing a Better Diversity Manager Resume

1. Focus on your DEI experience

You can pinpoint your most relevant information by following this two-step process:

–Step 1. Brainstorm the career details you’re most proud of and gather them into a single long document. (Name this document something like “Master Career Document.”) Don’t worry about order or organization – just get it all down first.

–Step 2. Any time you draft a new resume, save a copy of your master document. Then review all the information one item at a time, always asking yourself if it’s relevant to your current job search. If not, delete that item.

For your resume, it doesn’t matter how recent or lengthy (or even how objectively impressive) any given career experience was. If the experience doesn’t have much relevance to your current job goals, it doesn’t need much detail at all on your resume.

Strictly speaking, the only information you’re required to give on your resume is your name, contact information, and basic outline of your recent work history. Everything else is optional and should depend on this “relevance filter.”

2. Describe your HR background in simple terms

For nearly any piece of regular writing, it’s important to choose language that sets and maintains a clear tone or “voice.” That rule applies no differently to your job search documents. Here’s a quick breakdown of the written voice you should aim for on each one:

— Resume: formal, forthright
— Cover Letter: eager, confident
— LinkedIn Profile: friendly, personable

To achieve a forthright voice on your resume, use simple sentences and straightforward accounts of your experience.

Keep this advice in mind, especially when writing your profile section, since you may be tempted (or think you need) to use “promotional” terms like “Visionary” or “Outstanding at,” when a more modest yet direct phrase like “Skilled at” is better.

Example:

Collaborative Diversity Manager with 5+ years of experience in the finance sector. Skilled at fostering positive relationships with various internal and external stakeholders. Bilingual: Fluent in English and Spanish.

3. Spell out the results of your workforce initiatives

Each of your duties has some positive impact or influence, helping your broader organization succeed in the short and long term. Speak to that broader impact in your job descriptions, and you’ll strengthen your resume significantly.

You may not be able to recall examples or data to quantify a certain work area. If so, you can always state the general, intended result or value of the duty in question. Try simply adding the phrase “in order to” at the end of the duty statement, then jotting down whatever general purposes or outcomes you think of (and then delete “in order” from your final resume for brevity).

You might be surprised how much stronger the revised statement is. Just as important, it’s a more accurate account of your work’s depth and influence.

Example:

— Drive cultural awareness campaigns [in order] to promote understanding and cooperation among a geographically dispersed workforce

Key Skills Hiring Managers Look for on Diversity Manager Resumes

For a better diversity manager resume, include a “Key Skills” section. This section gives hiring managers a quick overview of the expertise and value you offer. It also helps your resume perform better in ATS scans. Consider including any of the terms below:

Key Skills and Proficiencies
Business Change Leadership Cross-Functional Collaboration
Cultural Awareness Campaigns Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)
Employee Engagement Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Laws
Executive Consulting Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS)
Human Resources (HR) Administration Policy Development & Interpretation
Process Redesign & Improvement Project & Program Management
Regulatory Compliance Staff Recruiting
Stakeholder Relations Management Talent Retention
Targeted Resource Allocation Team Leadership & Motivation
Work Culture Improvement Workforce Planning & Scheduling

Tip: As the above list indicates, you should stick with nouns and noun phrases in this section and reserve personal attributes and adjectives (like “Resourceful,” “Inventive,” or “Service-oriented”) for your Profile summary.

Common Action Verbs for Diversity Manager Resumes

A well-chosen verb helps show the value and dynamic nature of your work. It’s especially useful as the first word of your bulleted achievements in your Experience section. Consider using any of the verbs below for bullet points on your diversity manager resume:

Action Verbs
Build Clarify
Collaborate Coordinate
Drive Eliminate
Engage Integrate
Introduce Lead
Manage Organize
Partner Pinpoint
Prevent Reduce
Remove Resolve
Train Update

How to Align Your Diversity Manager Resume With a Job Posting

For each job in your Experience section, consider adding a company description. You can place this description in brackets right next to or below the company name. It also helps to match formatting. For instance, if you’ve italicized the company name, italicize the description too. (See resume #2 above for an example.)

Company descriptions let you show any similarities between your past and desired employers. For instance, maybe you’ve worked for companies in the same industry or of a similar size. By working these details into your descriptions, you can make your resume more inclusive to the job at hand and more likely to produce an interview.
