Campbell & Company Recognized in Top Ten Executive Search Firms for Women of Color

CHICAGO, IL – March 29, 2023 – Campbell & Company, an employee-owned national consulting firm, announces it has been named one of the Top 10 Executive Search Firms for Women of Color for the second consecutive year. This annual program was created by WOC to help women of color gain equal access to job opportunities and recruitment processes.

“Campbell & Company is grateful to WOC for this recognition,” states Kris McFeely, Managing Director, Executive Search at Campbell & Company. “We are honored to partner with nonprofits that advance justice, opportunity, and equity throughout our society—and we bring this same commitment to our search processes.”

The results of Campbell & Company searches reflect our commitment to diversity and equity. 100% of our pools yield diverse candidates. 52% of our overall placements are people of color, and 79% of our overall placements identify as female.

WOC surveyed its members and executive search firms that specialize in or conduct searches within the nonprofit or social sector, identifying ten national firms that are especially noteworthy for their approach to and results when working with women of color. WOC engaged Melissa Brown & Associates, LLC for the independent compilation of the Top 10 Executive Search Firms for Women of Color ranked list. Search firms and WOC members were asked similar questions to provide a perspective from both sides of an engagement. WOC members were also asked to provide feedback about firms they engaged as representatives of nonprofit or social sector organizations working to fill positions.

“Our firm is committed to building the strongest and most diverse leadership possible for this sector,” says Campbell & Company Co-President Kate Roosevelt. “From building a more diverse team inside our firm, to placing diverse executives with our nonprofit partners, we are fully committed to being inclusive of women and women of color when searching for a new leader.”
