Run a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive nominations process.

To impact long-term change in the boardroom and C-suite, the candidate pool and pipeline must be broadened to include diverse talent. Diligent Director Network creates the ability to source new profiles, including those with an emphasis on diversity, and especially racial diversity, through a unique and trusted nominations process. Directors who are part of the Diligent community will have the opportunity to do their part by recommending the next generation of rising directors.

Diligent is not a search firm. Our goal is to create as many opportunities as possible for talented, diverse people within our network. We have partnered with Spencer Stuart, who is creating transparency for aspiring diverse directors around many of their open board roles. Our platform is inclusive, and we expect to add a handful of additional partnerships with other leading search firms who are focused on diversity and inclusion.
