Settled along the Willamette River on the northwestern border of Oregon and across the Columbia River from Washington State, the city of Portland, Oregon has become a “small-big city” and one of the more prolific and progressive cities in the United States. Home to major corporate brands and Fortune 500 companies such as Intel, Nike, Adidas, and more, the Portland Metro Area has become a hub for many corporations and startups, building what has become known as the “Silicon Forest”. Portland is well-known for its cultural diversity in both residents and cuisine, as well as its many attractions throughout the city. The city is home to three major sports teams, the NBA’s TrailBlazers, and two soccer teams, the Timbers and the Thorns. Scion Executive Search is happy to call Portland home, sharing their passion for cultural diversity and equity.
Businesses that see diverse leadership as a strength are setting themselves up for success. At Scion Executive Search, we firmly believe that diverse teams and leadership are essential for overall success. One of the core values that is foundational to the way we do business is implementing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in everything we do from our own internal practice to recruiting. We act proactively in our work to ensure that our entire process from application to hiring is inclusive, beneficial, and equitable for all people. We promote and practice these values within our executive search firm, externally with each of our partnerships, as well as when searching for talent.
Presently, the practice of DEI within companies is about much more than mandated training programs, informational luncheons, and guest speakers. Taking the time to properly analyze your organization’s recruitment, hiring, retention, and training processes through a very scrutinized DEI lens. Researchers have found that while companies do believe that DEI is valuable, if they are not investing in the adequate resources, nor are they making it a strategic priority, they will not create a significant change to a long-standing issue within multiple industries.
Scion Executive Search has an experienced team of executive recruiters who share a passion of providing diverse, inclusive, and equitable talent acquisition for our clients, as well as vetting the organizations we choose to partner with to make sure they share the same core values and will be a good match for the candidate.
