At Koya, diversity, equity, and inclusion have always been deeply held values. We have woven these values into our internal hiring and culture-building systems, and we work with our executive search clients to implement recruiting strategies with a focus on essential diversity and inclusion practices. But we recognize that recruiting is only one element of a comprehensive diversity strategy. Also needed are wholesale commitment and action starting at the top of the organization, which for the nonprofit sector means the boards of directors.
