For candidates:

Placing exceptional leaders

Stay objective. Reflect your community.

For an equity-driven organization to be truly successful, we believe a diverse group of people must lead the work. When paired with the right opportunity, a person’s unique identity becomes one of their greatest professional assets. We focus on candidates’ experience, skills, knowledge, and career goals, rather than who they know and where they went to school.

By introducing a more objective process that challenges biases and assumptions, people who most experience structural racism and discrimination have greater opportunity to reach an organization’s highest levels. And this means they’re more reflective of the communities they serve. To match the right leaders with the right roles, we combine what’s working for our other clients with a deep knowledge of your culture —including talking with people at all levels of your organization to understand your needs now, and in the future.

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.
