Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Advisory

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is at an inflection point. Are your leaders prepared to navigate an evolving environment to unleash and sustain the value of DEI?

Getting DEI right and evolving your approach to reflect the competing needs of your context is critical. In the wake of the global pandemic and the West’s racial justice issues, DEI has become even more important to your talent, customers, shareholders, communities, and business outcomes.

Organizations leading the charge are integrating DEI as a value, input, and outcome of their business and talent strategies. They have recruited leaders well-versed in navigating the shifting landscape, tuning into their shareholder and stakeholder needs, and empowering a diverse workforce.

We know DEI challenges don’t exist in a vacuum. To make effective progress on DEI measures, you can’t treat them as standalone. That’s why our DEI solutions are a part of everything we do at Russell Reynolds Associates and flex to the unique needs of your context. 

DEI in executive search and succession

We help you remove barriers to entry by embedding equitable practices into executive search and succession processes. Doing so improves candidate experience, the ability to scope in the best talent, and the leadership pipeline.

Find DEI function leaders

With deep expertise across industries, we help you attract, assess, select, and onboard effective executives into DEI leadership roles and bring DEI knowledge into your boardroom. In turn, your DEI agenda stays evergreen, sustaining momentum and progress.

Strengthening DE&I Alignment through Data

In a regulatory environment, we take a data-backed approach to identify DEI priorities, measure progress to govern ESG goals, and align top teams to drive sustained impact.

Embedding Equity through Inclusive Recruitment

As leaders in executive search, we help you scope and retain the best talent and achieve a representative workforce composition. To do this effectively, we integrate equitable practices across search & succession, maximizing opportunity for diversity, fostering an inclusive candidate experience, and driving equity in outcomes for all groups.

Developing Inclusive Leadership Skills & Culture

We assess, develop, and equip leaders with behavioral skills to drive courageous conversations, mitigate bias in talent processes, and unleash individual potential. We help you know exactly where and how to create an inclusive culture and build equitable practices that help your organization thrive.
