Nonprofit HR values diversity and inclusion.

We cast a broad net that is national in scope to attract the best talent. We value and seek diversity throughout our search process by: recruiting high-performing talent from all segments of society; pursuing diverse individuals without regard to national origin, language, race, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, family structures, and differences of thought and life experiences to efficiently and effectively pursue organizational objectives; fostering inclusion by connecting the new leader to the organization; encouraging collaboration, flexibility, and fairness to enable full participation that contributes to a leader’s full potential; and working with our clients to understand the strategies and systems that are in place to effectively manage diversity, be accountable, measure results, and cultivate a culture of inclusion.
