All too often, diversity executive search firms compare themselves to law firms or management consultants. The firm wants to offer, then reap, all the benefits of a trusting (and at times, confidential) client relationship without taking on the necessary responsibilities. To offer a similar high-caliber suite of professional services as an expert in the executive search field when it comes to talent management and selection, it is imperative to step up and acknowledge a fiducial duty to present diverse candidate pools to clients, acknowledged Shawn Cole, president and founding partner of Cowen Partners, a national executive recruitment firm.
“As leaders of human capital management, it is incumbent upon us to not expect nor wait for clients to request or mandate this goal, especially during diversity searches,” said Mr. Cole. “In fact, we, as the talent selection industry, must become the driving force in reflecting within the workplace the diversity already found within our society, stakeholders, and customers.”
