Diverse and inclusive leadership that fosters belonging

At Stanton Chase, we have an important role to play in helping our clients build diverse leadership teams.  

We believe that organizations are better positioned to achieve excellence when their leadership matches the diversity in their workforce, communities, customers, stakeholders, and markets. Plus, investing in inclusion strategies improves financial performance and adds value to shareholders.

Stanton Chase has a strong track record in diversity search assignments and embraces the global reality of diversity and inclusion. Our diversity recruitment strategy focuses on tackling unconscious biases to attract and retain top-qualified candidates.  

We also assist our clients in implementing inclusive initiatives that foster fairness in performance evaluations.

Board Diversity Recruitment

If your company has not been affected by corporate diversity laws yet, we forecast that it is only a matter of time before it will be. Board diversity will no longer be an optional endeavor. Many companies have already begun embracing it, but the majority are lagging. 

Through years of experience in partnering with our clients to build a diverse workforce and drive board transformation, we know that change can be achieved in a way that does not hinder operations but enhances them. 

With expertise advising clients on board composition, board renewal, succession planning, and recruiting transformative and diverse board talent, our consultants are  here to help. 

We passionately champion the cause of diverse boards and openly endorse the goal of ensuring a minimum of 30% female representation on all boards. We are dedicated to helping our clients achieve this milestone too.

Stanton Chase is a proud member of the 30% Club in Australia, Canada, Chile, the USA, and the UK.

Inclusive Culture 

Employees experiencing a sense of inclusion within their organizations are approximately three times more likely to be enthusiastic about and dedicated to their organizations’ missions compared to their peers. 

Research reveals that individuals from diverse and historically marginalized backgrounds, such as people of color, women, and LGBTQ+ individuals, often face greater challenges in achieving this sense of inclusion. We need to do better. 

At Stanton Chase, we recognize the undeniable connection between a sense of inclusion, employee engagement, and overall well-being. We firmly believe it’s a company’s responsibility to cultivate an environment where employees feel included, valued, and experience a genuine sense of belonging. 

Let us guide your organization in fostering a genuinely inclusive culture. Our global team combines extensive international and local knowledge to effectively address your workplace diversity and inclusiveness challenges. With access to a diverse pool of candidates and underrepresented talent, we’re well-equipped to meet your organization’s needs. 

Our Diversity Hiring Process 

At Stanton Chase, we view candidates as individuals with unique experiences and backgrounds. This informs the way we interact with them. 

In building our candidate pipelines for each assignment, we prioritize diversity and adhere to principles of non-discrimination, merit-based selection, and respect for all individuals. 

Our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is evident throughout every stage of the executive search process, from our proposal and pitch presentations to our candidate interviews. 

Our structured evaluation process ensures that all candidates, regardless of background, are interviewed in the same way, using the same criteria and the same metric for success. We are dedicated to fostering a globally inclusive environment within our organization and in the workplaces of our clients.

We aspire to create a world where all organizations welcome and celebrate the unique qualities of individuals, regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, culture, subculture, sexual orientation, disabilities, age, socio-economic background, education, personal experiences, or areas of expertise. Our vision is a world that values each person’s distinct contributions.

By wholeheartedly embracing these distinct perspectives, we help our clients cultivate an environment where the power of inclusion radiates through the brilliance of diverse thought.
