Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are embedded in Lindauer’s identity and practice.
As one of only two organizations in the country along with Georgia Tech that began to gather diverse professionals in the late 1990s, we have created strong communities of practice and professional support. Lindauer continues to play an industry-leading role in ensuring that nonprofits accurately reflect the populations they serve. Our leaders actively advance diversity as innovators and strategists through board service, speaking engagements, and community engagement across the nonprofit and talent management landscapes.
Lindauer demonstrates a clear record of valuing differences in race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, and genetic information. Upholding an inclusive mindset and principles, and constantly advancing our own team and individual learnings, we ensure that our search process attracts and engages dynamic pools of talent. Strategic sourcing and networking are imperative. In addition to creating network and marketing strategies with diverse professional audiences, Lindauer consultants are continuously connecting with members of underrepresented groups or individuals who work actively to support underrepresented groups. We work closely with a trusted group of associates, built over 25 years of authentic and humble interaction, and we constantly expand our network with referrals across the country.
Leading candidates, however, are also savvy consumers — these talented professionals will have many choices and will explore both perceptions and realities of any organization they consider joining, especially when they will be expected to represent the institution externally. We work actively to bring candidates of diverse lived experience to every client slate; we also work to ensure that client leaders espouse the values they purport and that the interview process affirms organizational values and commitment.
