Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We’re building a culture where everyone belongs.

Employees Leading the Charge

At Onward Search, we have an employee-led DE&I committee focused on implementing programs and recognizing causes that connect to our people. We strive to attract diverse talent, provide recognition, empower voices equally, celebrate all beliefs, and give back to non-profits that align with our mission of matching great talent with great companies.

We are building an incredibly supportive community that aligns with our core values. Employees are encouraged to embrace each other, build trust and have awareness at top of mind.

We hire, retain, and develop the best talent from all backgrounds. We’re redefining the growth and development of our employees through career pathing, management training, performance evaluations and women’s leadership programs.

We believe that discrimination, racism, and prejudice have no place in our society. In 2020, Onward Search donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and we will continue to support and help our employees, communities, and country address any challenges that may lie ahead.
