The Diversity Debate In Executive Recruitment

Diversity among executive ranks is important and comes up for discussion regularly in our field. Most often it’s in relation to gender but also in the context of sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious orientation, age, disability, and so on.

As someone who literally sits between the job market and the employers, and who has done so for the past 17 years, I’ve had plenty of first hand experience in understanding the agendas of employers and the dynamic of the market applying for the roles. And while there have definitely been problems with diversity at the executive and board  level in the past, I’m pretty optimistic about the changes that are happening and the trends we can expect in the coming years.

In this episode: 

  • Breaking the glass ceiling for women
