According to McKinsey & Company and their report Diversity Matters, companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35% more likely to have financial returns above their national industry medians, and those in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15% more likely to see greater financial returns.  

As more companies understand the case for diversity, qualified diversity candidates are in high demand, so it is imperative to look beyond your immediate network to find the high-quality candidates that meet the requirements and have the experience needed. Our network includes over 1,000 executives for diversity mandate with previous positions at PE- and VC-backed companies. We have also mapped out a variety of career path options that have historically led to success (such as board positions augmenting operating experience) to provide the right pool of candidates to choose from.
