Our Commitment

Diversified Search Group was founded in 1974 with the purpose of bringing unheard voices and perspectives to the leadership table. Today, we continue to open up opportunities in leadership for women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, immigrants, veterans, people with disabilities, and others from groups that have been previously underrepresented in the corporate, nonprofit, healthcare, and academic sectors.

Our commitment is stronger than ever

At Diversified Search Group, we work at every turn to build partnerships with our clients and candidates that reflect values of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as well as foster environments of belonging and accountability. Just as the public conversation about DEI continues to evolve, so does our expertise, under the leadership of one of the most diverse executive teams in the search industry.

Our Practices and Services

Behind our placement statistics is an approach based on our deep respect for candidates and clients.

Each of our searches utilizes a consultative approach that allows us to understand our clients’ DEI goals and to engage with them in productive partnership. Likewise, our consultants build long-term, supportive relationships with our candidates and connectors to ensure that we treat the members of our vast community and network with respect and care.

We build candidate pools focused on skills, qualities, and characteristics as well as the contributions that our candidates can make to an organization’s culture. We engage and support candidates that bring a diversity of professional and lived experiences through focused research and strategic networking. Knowing the impact of explicit and implicit bias, we continuously build our own skills in addressing these issues, while being prepared to partner with clients to ensure inclusive and equitable practices throughout the executive search.
