One of the fastest-growing careers in America is that of diversity officer, according to data from LinkedIn.

From LinkedIn:
Protests sparked by the police-involved shootings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor caused organizations around the world to reckon with systemic racism and a lack of diversity in positions of power. Companies -- large and small -- turned to diversity experts who could help them bring new voices into their organizations. Hiring for these roles increased more than 90% since 2019.

Top job titles: Diversity Manager, Diversity Officer, Head of Diversity, Diversity Coordinator | Skills: Community Outreach, Teaching, Organizational Development | Top Locations Hiring: New York City, San Francisco, Chicago | Education: 99% of hires have a bachelor’s degree or higher | Salary Range: $72,900 - $97,000 | Remote job availability: Low
