Who We Hire
Our colleagues have come to Koya to focus deeply on amplifying the impact of mission-driven organizations by identifying and placing exceptionally talented leaders. They also come to Koya to work with a diverse, collaborative, supportive team that believes in what we do.
We believe that talent is the key lever for achieving social change . . . and it starts right here, on our own team.
The Right People in the Right Place Begins Here at Koya
We believe wholeheartedly that best-in-class service to the clients and candidates we serve can—and should—go hand in hand with being a best-in-class organization for our team. We have an internal People, Values & Culture team whose entire focus is making sure we are recruiting the right people, investing in their development, and ensuring they have the tools and resources they need to be successful. This focus has allowed us to build a strong workplace culture that reflects our core values.
Koya is a place where employees thrive both personally and professionally. Staff members are empowered to help our clients change the world and to become active supporters of the personal causes that matter most to them.
Our Philanthropy Program
Koya’s multi-tiered, employee-driven philanthropy program empowers individual team members to create impact by being educated philanthropists. Our Passion Project stipend gives all employees the opportunity to increase their personal philanthropic efforts by contributing to the nonprofit cause of their choosing. Our Community Impact Committee allows for company-wide decisions about how to harness the power of volunteer time and corporate donations to provide additional support to a cause or mission selected by staff annually.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
Koya Leadership Partners has an explicit commitment to diversity in our work with clients as well as internally in our own firm. Our attention to diversity goes beyond rhetoric. We track diversity both internally and externally and use diversity metrics as a measurement of performance for our recruiters.
Our internal DEI Committee meets monthly for discussion and learning, and to ensure that we approach our work and internal policies and procedures with a DEI lens. The DEI Committee also developed Koya’s Diversity Statement, which codifies our values and informs our internal and external work around diversity, equity and inclusion.
