Diversity Equity and Inclusion

We believe in the power of people and their unique perspectives.

DEI at Ellig Group

DEI is our DNA

In 2000, only 3.6% of Fortune 500 CEOs were women and/or people of color. Two decades later, that number had risen… to a whopping 14.2%.

Meanwhile, in 2021, 96% of Ellig Group’s candidate placements contained women and/or diverse executives. Over the last 20 years, 80% of our executive appointments and 85% of our board appointments were women and members of underrepresented communities. 

These numbers are real and they are not reactions to recent shifts in public opinion. To Ellig Group – a certified women-owned business and a premiere purpose-driven NYC executive search firm – this is hardly news. We’ve been leaders in the push for diversity and gender parity since our inception as a firm. That’s why we say DEI is our DNA. That is why we want our legacy to be we helped companies achieve gender and diverse parity.

The world has finally realized that diversity is good for business. Diversity is our reality. Equity is our moral compass. And Inclusion is a skill we’ve cultivated over years of practice.
