Commitment to Diversity

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging are values held by KEES and are embedded in our philosophy, practices, policies and commitments. Since the 1990s, leaders of the firm have promoted Diversity, then Diversity and Equity, then DEI, and today DEIB.

We are dedicated to addressing equitable recruitment with our executive search clients, and prioritizing equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in the workplace.

In Phase 1 of the KEES 4-Phase Search Process, we work with each client to define diversity as part of a larger conversation focused on the client’s specific needs and goals. We then extend that conversation to encompass the essential and desired requirements of the open position.

While the finalist selection/hire is ultimately up to the client, KEES is committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive candidate pool. We commit as a firm that 100% of candidate pools presented to clients will meet at least two diversity metrics.

Here are a few of our firm’s current metrics:
