Whether it’s finding and assessing diverse talent, building diverse leadership teams, or working with clients to create an inclusive culture that harnesses the power of diversity, our members appreciate the importance of diversity as a business imperative, and can help clients capture the enhanced business results that diversity affords.
Clients who partner with an AESC member significantly increase their ability to find, recruit, and retain the best diverse talent around the world. Whether a client’s objective is to increase gender diversity on the board, build a truly global leadership team reflective of the marketplace, or ensure that leaders have different backgrounds and experiences to enhance innovative thinking, clients can count on AESC members to deliver.
The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC) recognizes that diversity is a business imperative with direct implications for organizational success. As trusted advisors to those companies that drive economies, lead innovation, and compete across vital sectors and geographies, we know first-hand the power of diverse corporate leadership. Our member firms are uniquely positioned to advise our clients on the talent that will give them a competitive edge.
To meet emerging demand for gender diverse boards from business leaders, regulators and governments, the AESC partners with various organizations supporting diversity in leadership, including WomenCorporateDirectors, Global Board Ready Women, and a range of leading business schools. The AESC is also a supporter and distribution partner for the Hong Kong GLBT Workplace Inclusion Index. This initiative is operated by Community Business and supported by Goldman Sachs, IBM, and Société Générale.
