Diversity Search

In today’s fast moving global marketplace, identifying, recruiting and retaining diverse professional leadership is a strategic imperative — and a major challenge for many businesses.  JDG embraces this global reality and has a deep appreciation for the value of diversity, not only within our own firm, but also for our clients. At the core, we believe that a diverse range of experiences, backgrounds, perspectives, cultures, race and gender brings unique competitive advantages and innovative solutions to business challenges.

We have a proven track record of increasing the number of diverse candidates by conducting extensive outreach in a targeted manner.  For years, we have proactively cultivated relationships with diverse sets of industry thought leaders and a wide-range of diverse associations and professional societies.  In doing so, we extend awareness of executive searches that might be of interest to their members as well as afford them opportunities that foster career growth.  We are proud to be a member of the Minority Business Roundtable, a national membership organization for executives of African-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American, and Native-American-owned top-tier businesses, representing a variety of trades and industries.

For every search we conduct we are highly cognizant of our client’s desire to increase its level of diversity across the board; we strive to present a diverse candidate pool.  This is a critical element of all JDG searches and we stand by this commitment.  Recent examples of searches that have yielded a senior diversity leader include:
