ON Recognize Diverse Leaders And Organizations

Jan 17, 2022

ON Partners highlights a sample of diverse executive placements for the second half of 2021

As a values-driven executive search firm, we believe a better experience starts with a more diverse experience. We understand our unique position of influence as executive search consultants, and our responsibility to help increase the number of diverse executives in business in collaboration with our ON community of leaders.

During the second half of 2021, ON Partners consultants continued to place a diverse group of senior executives with organizations across many market sectors. 39% of all closed ON searches were diverse placements, and the number of diverse placements overall grew 63% in 2021 compared to the previous year. For the second year in a row, the firm was named to the HR and Diversity Power 65 Recruiting list, announced by market research firm Hunt Scanlon.

We’ve also further integrated diversity initiatives into the fabric of our daily operations and client deliverables to take an active approach to DEI – not simply in words, but with tangible actions and results. While we know there is still much work to be done, we want to continue to recognize organizations and executive leaders within our community that have made great strides in building diverse leadership teams.

With our DEI Video Series, we continue to tap into our community of leaders and executive influencers to understand what actions they are taking, where the challenges are, and how they have progressed in their DEI journey. Recent videos feature Jignasha Amin Grooms, Executive Vice President, CHRO/Legal at Epicor; supply chain executive Christina C. Loh; and Oris Stuart, EVP, Chief People & Inclusion Officer at the NBA.
