I found Pacific very inclusive and non-judgmental. I think for me Pacific stands out as an executive search firm that will never put your CV/resume in the bin. Research conducted by the Department of Work and Pension shows that for every CV that comes in, a CV from a black person is four times more likely to end up in a bin than everybody else based on their name. With Pacific, I always felt that it was not my race or my gender but rather who I am that was a factor in putting me forward. I have a very positive image of Pacific, they were very respectful and considerate, and inclusive during my recruitment journey and it continues to date.

Firstly, thank you for placing me in my current role, a great result! If you want to make diverse hires, it is important to be curious and open-minded versus looking for certain skills that you can tick off your list. Throughout the whole process, Pacific showed exactly that attitude, it felt very refreshing. In all the interactions I have had with Pacific there was that sense of exploration and curiosity that I think is vital to make successful diversity placements.

Pacific made me feel so comfortable I felt like I was speaking with a colleague rather than an executive recruiter. Many recruiters’ goal is to expose the person’s weaknesses. With Pacific, it was the opposite. I felt like they were trying to understand my strengths and get to know me, and that made all the difference.

Let us help you build inclusive organization that lasts

We believe that when diverse leaders reach the top echelons of corporate ladder, they start building more inclusive leadership teams. Employing a top-down approach, our methodology aids senior leaders to pinpoint areas for positive transformation. Collaborating closely with our clients, we formulate comprehensive, data-driven strategies aimed at nurturing inclusive cultures and achieving lasting, positive outcomes.

Creating a genuinely inclusive organization requires companies to formulate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) strategies rooted in talent and business objectives. These strategies should be informed by data and analytics and executed by leaders who prioritize exclusivity and accountability.

Partnering with the right Trusted Executive Search Partner such as Pacific International, one whose unwavering commitment to building inclusive teams from the top down shines through every shortlist and 40% of placements, many in male-dominated industries, will help you achieve your business goals through transformational talent appointments.

Diversity: Beyond Gender

Adding diverse voices to the leadership team has a different meaning for every company. It goes deeper than gender or skin color, although those aspects, of course, inform their perspectives. Different lived experiences of people from underrepresented groups bring different perspectives to the table.
