We are known global thought leaders in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) consulting and among executive search firms for diversity and HR leaders. We can help your company outperform the market by providing you not only with actionable DEI best practices, but also a wider array of incredible diverse candidates who will bring a broader perspective and even better decision making to your organization.

Our diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging services are listed below. Contact us to discuss how we can partner with you on your unique DEI needs.

DEI Consulting

We train our clients on the best practices for DEI, including specific, accountable steps your talent acquisition team can take to not only improve hiring metrics, but create or augment your practices for inclusion and belonging in your hiring process.

DEI Human Resources Executive Search

In addition to providing a diverse slate of People and HR candidates for every executive search and following best practices for diversity recruitment, we conduct searches for Chief Diversity Officers, Heads of Diversity and Inclusion, and other specific diversity leader roles.

DEI Board Placement

Our network includes a wide variety of experienced and diverse corporate leaders who are sitting senior executives at major corporations. These leaders have the strategic experience and qualifications to bring value to your board, or to take on additional board seats. Board candidates range from Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) to other general business executives. If you are a CEO or board member and are recruiting additional board seats, please contact us to discuss.

DEI at Frederickson

Equality. Diversity. Inclusion. Consciousness. Reduced bias. Fairness. Making the world a better place. At Frederickson, this is who we are and what we believe in. These are the actions we take every day.

We consciously recruit for, hire, and develop a diverse team because it’s what we value. We know that we perform better and gain more joy from our work lives when we are a diverse team and can learn from each other. We believe that our team needs to reflect the real world, not the old world. Both in our DEI consulting and our broad practice, we recruit for abilities and potential, not just for demonstrated experience. We recruit for shared values, not shared culture. We welcome and embrace, not exclude and limit.

Technology (Social Media)


During a period of tremendous growth and transformation for Facebook, the company needed to increase the visibility and importance attached to DEI efforts across the organization. Frederickson Partners engaged with the Facebook executive team and the 37-person Diversity Council to entirely determine the requirements for the roles and recruitment process. A Global Chief Diversity Officer joined the company from White & Case. Three other DEI executives were also hired (from General Electric, Newmont, and Roche) to build the team.
