March 18, 2015 – The Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) has partnered with WomenCorporateDirectors (WCD). The alliance will connect the 3,500 chairs, CEOs, COOs and other C-level executives of WCD with the 8,000 executive search and leadership consulting professionals of the AESC. “This initiative reflects AESC’s support for inclusive candidate slates in board recruitment, and of the AESC’s commitment in supporting diversity within executive ranks,” said Glenda Brown, AESC managing director of global partnerships. The AESC will provide all 3,500 members of WomenCorporateDirectors membership to BlueSteps, the AESC’s career management service developed uniquely for senior executives and board candidates. In turn, AESC members will have enhanced access to a diverse database when sourcing candidates for their board and C-suite search assignments.
