No more passes please!

May 1, 2023

Look, I get it. As a recruiter for diverse and female leaders, I know I'm not your average run-of-the-mill HR exec. But that doesn't mean you can pass me around like a hot potato without taking any real action.

Recently, I had an experience that left me scratching my head. I spoke with a CEO who was interested in hiring a female COO. He passed me off to his HR exec, who passed me off to the talent acquisition manager, who then directed me to the hiring manager. And what did I get in return? Radio silence.

It's like playing a game of "pass the recruiter" without any real effort to embrace diversity.

Let's get real here. Acknowledging the lack of representation in your organization is a good start, but it's not enough. You need to take action and be intentional about creating diverse and inclusive work environments.

As an engineer turned recruiter, I'm here to help you find diverse and female leaders who can bring valuable perspectives and experiences to your team. But if you're not ready to make that change, that's okay too. Just be honest about it.

Don't just talk about embracing diversity – take action. Let's work together to create more colorful and feminine leadership teams. Because let's face it, you need us. And we're pretty awesome.
