Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Valtas Group DEI Position
The Valtas Group recognizes the privilege that the white-led consulting and recruiting industry represents and the inherent systemic bias which has historically prevented people of color and those with other diverse perspectives from participating in an equitable and inclusive process. We strive to deeply understand where each client is on the spectrum of social justice and equity and adapt our processes to support and advance the client’s goals while never compromising our own commitment to equity, diversity, and valuing the lived experience of everyone we come in contact with.
Executive Director Search Process Design with an Equity & Inclusion Lens
With the stated goals of equity and inclusion, in our Executive Search practice, Valtas has integrated many steps to operationalize our commitment to equity, inclusion, and anti-racism into the recruiting process for an open CEO or Executive position.
In partnership with our clients’ board, Valtas will integrate all current DEI practices from the organizations internal recruiting practices and leverage our own extensive experience, network and outreach to connect with candidates, including BIPOC and other historically underrepresented candidates.
The Valtas interview process uses standard initial screening and interview rubrics for equitable treatment of all candidates with consideration for questions that value lived experiences and reflect culture alignment along with potential to be successful.
