How we work

We look at the data, ask the tough questions and—when we need to—disrupt the status quo. We’ve learned that real change can’t come from relying on the same systems and “best practices” that got us here in the first place.

Here’s how we empower our clients to live their values:

We listen

Whether you’re in need of an exceptional leader or a more equitable compensation program, we begin by asking questions and actively listening. We include voices from across your organization to build support and alignment, and in your community to ensure we hear directly from those in need.

We build relationships

We dig deep to understand your culture and your greatest hopes and fears instead of checking boxes in a one-size-fits-all process. We also get to know and stay in touch with promising candidates even if we don’t have a role for them right now.

We question the why

We encourage you to closely examine your current ways of hiring, compensating, and managing people. Then we ask you to clearly articulate your philosophy before making any concrete changes.

We co-create solutions

Your participation in the process is critical for its success. We help you equip your leaders with the habits and skills they need to do their jobs more equitably and build more impactful teams.

We stay objective

We combine qualitative and quantitative data to challenge biases and assumptions that undermine equitable practices and decision-making. The job descriptions we write emphasize skills, knowledge, and experience, rather than where candidates went to school or who they know.

We never give up

We don’t stop until we find the right candidate and come up with practical solutions that work for our clients, right now and well into the future.

Case studies

Put your values to work. Act on equity.


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.
