ESL signs and steadfastly commits to Diversity Pledge

AESC PARTNER PLEDGE – As a partner of the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC), we share AESC’s commitment to combat racism, prejudice, and discrimination within our own organisations, with candidates, our clients, and in our communities. We pledge to use our collective voices and actions to help create a world that is inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible for all.


ACCELERATE: By adopting this pledge, we commit to developing and deepening actions within our own organisation. Our Guiding Principles will help inform actions which will accelerate a sustainable positive impact.

EDUCATE: We commit to listen, engage, and learn so that we can do better both as employers and as trusted partners to our clients. We will understand and leverage best practices to greatly enhance attracting and developing diverse talent for ourselves and by supporting our clients to do the same.

ADVANCE: We will mentor diverse talent and will identify partnerships that allow us to have a greater impact.

ADVOCATE: We will advocate with our clients to help them embrace best practices that further their diversity and inclusion efforts which, in turn, will enhance business results. We will contribute our time and our expertise to underserved communities to advance racial equity and economic empowerment and to fight for social justice.
