Jonathan Howard Promoted to Associate Partner

Jonathan Howard - Promotion to Associate Partner

Edgility is pleased to announce the promotion of Jonathan Howard to Associate Partner!

Jonathan is coming up on his 1 year anniversary at Edgility in February as part of our Executive Search Team! Like all of us, Jonathan (or “JoHo” as we like to call him) is passionate about advancing equity in his work. Learn more about his journey to achieving that goal below.

What are you most excited to accomplish in your new role?

I’m excited about the opportunity to influence and support the continued growth and development of my Edgility teammates so that collectively we can have a greater impact with the organizations we partner with.

What are 2-3 biggest lessons you’ve learned on your journey to becoming a leader at Edgility?

1) Excellence has to be our mindset – how can whatever it is we’re doing (designing selection processes, building career pathways) be truly excellent?
2) Being my authentic self and being intentional about building relationships so that others can do the same.

How do you hope to advance equity in your new role?

By insisting that Edgility lead by example on equity. We must push ourselves to get more granular about what we mean by equity and clearly define how we hold ourselves accountable to advancing it in our work.

What are a few things you love about the communities you serve?

I love that the people and orgs I work with aren’t happy with marginal improvements – they are working toward ambitious outcomes that will have significant, even life-changing impact for and with the communities they serve.  


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.
