At Scion Executive Search, promoting, modeling, and implementing diverse, equitable, and inclusive policies, hiring practices, and services is an uncompromising value. We believe in the importance of removing implicit bias and equally considering all qualified candidates no matter the color of their skin, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other protected characteristic. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are each essential components for success, and working together, these three elements are the backbone of modern, successful, and scaling organizations. With our DEI executive search firm services, we confidently provide the resources you need to make an equitable match. While many corporate teams have made diversity a top hiring priority, so much more can and should be done to strengthen organizations at the leadership and executive levels.

I am proud to say that the growth and impact of the Scion Staffing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee is having a multiplier effect on the interest and passion that our team brings to our work and clients. With DEI, there is an inherent, wide spectrum of where peoples’ interest and passion is.
Cheryl Nantang – Co-Chair
As a member of the Scion DEI Committee, I joined to help establish a supportive and welcoming work environment where employees of all backgrounds and demographic characteristics could work together to ensure that equitable recruiting practices and solutions are developed and implemented. Thus, our voice extends the business’s reach to our partners and clients.
Embracing diversity, equity, inclusion, representation, and an overall sense of belonging can significantly change perceptions of the world around you. Letting diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging be a foundational part of how you approach others in your personal and professional life creates an environment that people want to be a part of.
“We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.”– Max De Pree, “Leadership Is An Art”

In every search led by Scion Executive Search, cultivating diverse and equity-focused candidate pools is a key priority that is upheld throughout the entirety of the recruitment process. Every executive candidate is carefully and thoughtfully considered by their professional qualifications, and we diligently work to determine which individuals possess the skills and experience required to meet and exceed the strategic objectives for your open role as well as your organization. We work proactively to ensure that our comprehensive executive search process, interview methods, and hiring strategies remain inclusive, equitable, and beneficial for all.
Our role in diversity-focused recruitment is intentional, it is proactive, and it is consistent. As your partner, we strategically engage our network to cultivate incredible slates of candidates from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, regardless of personal traits or characteristics. In addition to engaging candidates from a variety of industries and backgrounds, our conscious approach to executive recruiting ensures your open role will reach individuals that have been disproportionately impacted by institutionalized oppression and/or those who self-identify as members of a diverse group (including race, gender identity (inclusive of transgender identity as well as transitioning) and gender expression, sexual orientation, veteran status or military service, disability, age, and generation). While we remain committed to ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion remain at the forefront in the exclusive candidate pools we create; each and every candidate within the slate we present for your consideration is selected based upon their unique executive leadership skills and qualifications. At no point in our recruiting process are candidates judged by their traits.
Our team looks forward to the opportunity to provide you with examples of our proven approach to diversity executive search as well as details about how our team of recruiting experts stands ready to strengthen your organization through our strategic executive search services and diversity-focused recruiting.
