On Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We envision a more equitable world.

Since the onset of our practice 20+ years ago, we have recognized the need to develop and expand awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion. It has been an integral consideration and mandate in the strategic execution of every assignment. Thinking more broadly than just the search assignment, we go a step further, however, and actively participate in diversity-based organizations to drive measurable change in academia, industry, and the communities in which we live.

We stand with AESC members in our commitment to help create meaningful and lasting change.
