DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

Organizations that embrace Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) as true priorities generate ideas and accomplish achievements that otherwise would not be realized.

Simply recruiting diverse talent is not enough. To fully maintain and leverage a diverse workforce, companies must also display an authentic commitment to equity and inclusion by weaving DE&I goals into their processes, culture, and workplaces. This means cultivating environments where people of all identities feel heard, included and valued, developing minority group talent, and creating teams where individuals of all backgrounds succeed. We pursue leaders who are at the forefront of these efforts by retaining diversity, promoting equality, modeling inclusivity, and holding their organizations accountable to DE&I goals.

Our Firm’s Commitment To Each Other:

  • Foster an inclusive environment where all individuals feel a sense of belonging and can share their authentic selves.

  • Build and support pathways for individuals to reach their full potential.

  • Identify each team member’s unique strengths and support them in using those talents regularly.

  • Learn about and uncover our own unconscious biases within our team.

  • Recruit and retain the most talented team in the search industry, while continually expanding the diversity of our team to reflect the world we live in.

Our Commitment To Our Clients:

  • Think critically about candidate criteria and strive to expand the diversity of candidate pools for each search by considering alternative industry sectors, varying functional roles, unique career paths, and life experiences.
  • Recognize and address areas of unconscious biases in our search methods to ensure the recruiting process is as inclusive as possible.
  • Dive deep into a candidate´s background to uncover what sets them apart and how their identity, backgrounds, and experiences have shaped the way they lead others.
  • Recruit executive leaders who are creating the most inclusive and diverse teams in their industries by advancing DE&I in their current organization.
