Our Commitment to EDI

Determination to challenge inequality galvanises our commitment to EDI at Boyden UK. Our goal is to alter the template for executive leadership such that the image of the C-suite executive is defined not by ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, socioeconomic, neurodiversity, or national origin, but purely by the ability to lead, inspire, and deliver results.

For the past 75 years we have been instrumental in the evolution of executive search, and as an industry leader, we set standards for others to follow. With this standing comes the responsibility to evolve our services to reflect changing values, blaze new trails, and dismantle old barriers.

We see ourselves as part of the solution, and we are proud to play an active role in creating change. This includes integrating a clear EDI approach into our recruitment and talent advisory processes, forming productive partnerships, and holding ourselves accountable in every search we undertake.

"The bottom line: management diversity is good for business. Challenging and taking action against the status quo is the only way forward - to disrupt ourselves; to acknowledge our role as advocates and active contributors towards progress.”

- Chad Hesters, President & CEO, Boyden
