For candidates:

Put your values to work. Act on equity.

People are what matter most in almost every field — especially in social impact organizations. Yet default practices reinforce existing structures, costing organizations the genius and diversity they need. Edgility does more than run executive searches — we help organizations bring practice and structure into alignment with values.

Building a more equitable workplace

Our clients want to live up to their values, but it’s not always easy to know where to start. That’s where we come in. Edgility serves as a trusted, compassionate, tough-love partner that helps our clients place exceptional leaders, create transparent compensation programs, and build more equitable organizations.

Place exceptional leaders

Create transparent compensation programs

Build equitable organizations

Our work often requires rapid responses due to the nature of helping activists who are at risk. We’re grateful to Edgility for helping us slow down and take a step back to assess the health of our organization from a salary, equity, and performance perspective. It’s important that we reward our employees for their brave work. We look forward to continuing to partner with Edgility to develop and improve our internal systems.

While Planned Parenthood of Southern New England (PPSNE) has worked to increase racial equity internally and externally, the racial reckoning of 2020 illuminated the need to ask ourselves what more we can do. With Edgility’s methodology, we had clear data points and recommendations to create a plan internally to address any wage gaps and further our commitment to racial equity.

Treating people equitably is core to who we are and why we exist. The tremendous insights we gained from our work with Edgility have strengthened our organization so we can continue to move the needle for even more marginalized children in the Los Angeles area.
Deena Mangrum
Director of Talent Strategy, Para Los Niños
Finding an Executive Director amidst a global pandemic wasn’t ideal, but we were fortunate to have Edgility as a partner to find us the right leader for our organization. Edgility helped us navigate through this very uncertain time and guided us to a better understanding of what we wanted and needed in a leader. We’re ecstatic to have Jay lead our organization.

Edgility is an incredible resource to help current and aspiring nonprofit executives find the best professional fit where they can make the deepest impact. Equity in Education represents an opportunity for me to organize communities, schools, and politics and guarantee a more equitable future for the next 10 generations of children.
Anthony Wilson
Equity in Education
It was important that we find someone with a deep, cross-cultural understanding and vision for how to bring this real-life knowledge into the classroom in a way that’s enriching for our kids. Kennedy’s background and years of experience working with charter schools is exactly what we need to help amplify our mission. We’re thankful to Edgility for partnering with us in our very specific Executive Director search.

Put your values to work. Act on equity.

We believe equity isn’t a box to check. It’s a daily action. Someone’s unique identity isn’t something to overcome–when paired with the right opportunity, it becomes one of their greatest professional assets. We exist to empower social impact organizations to recognize and overcome unconscious bias, racism and sexism so they can build a workforce that reflects and strengthens the communities they serve.
