55% of our placements in 2019 were female
SRI Executive strives for gender parity based on meritocracy on all longlists and shortlists we submit to clients. As an organisation we have seen the number of women we place annually grow until in 2019, when for the first time our female placements outnumbered male placements.
The women we placed in 2019 were predominantly for Board, C-Suite, Vice President, and Director-level positions. Among them were Director General of the International Development Law Organisation (IDLO), Executive Director & Vice President for Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), Chair, Office of the Compliance Review Panel (OCRP) at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Deputy Director General of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), among others.
Our experience has shown us that gender parity is a common institutional challenge for organisations working in global development. We are well-placed to help our clients address gender diversity, and are excited to see more organisations thrive as a result of having female talent at their highest tiers.
An internal culture that inspires
SRI Executive places gender and diversity at the heart of our organisation, and we are better for it.
Our own team is 80% female and 60% from developing countries. Celebrating difference through diverse backgrounds, identity, ideas and beliefs, we create a space which encourages collaboration and ingenuity. We believe that promoting diverse perspectives fosters an environment which stimulates growth. SRI Executive instills this philosophy not only in our own organisation, but in the services we provide.
