Equitable Hiring Group helps non-profits and impact-driven organizations find the best talent.
Diversity hiring can easily verge into tokenization — that’s why we design hiring processes that take implicit bias and social inequities into account.
Traditional hiring strategies favor white people, men, cis-gendered folks, those with educated parents, wealthy people, and people with the ability to take unpaid internships, just to name a few.
Our hiring strategies address these inequities — allowing us to source from a truly diverse pool of candidates to find the right fit for your organization.
We are a collective of hiring professionals who work independently, but share common values and practices. Get in touch with the member best suited for your search needs, or email our founding partner Abe Taleb to be matched.
Abe has over a decade of experience in nonprofit talent, first as a founder of ReWork, then as a Managing Director at Koya Leadership Partners. His professional interests meet at the intersection of social enterprise, policy innovation, and racial justice. Abe has placed over 250 professionals at organizations, including Acumen, iCivics, The Omidyar Group, Sierra Club, Supermajority among many others. Abe focuses on non-executive search, from Analysts to Director of Operations, and everything in between.
Melanie has managed recruiting functions within the nonprofit sector for over fifteen years, working with Taproot Foundation, Summer Search, Relay Resources, and Koya Leadership Partners as an Executive Search Manager. She primarily works with organizations that are dedicated to social, racial, and environmental justice in the Pacific Northwest, where she resides. Melanie focuses on a wide swath of searches, ranging from Executive Directors to part-time support.
Heather is an energetic recruiter experienced in mission-driven recruiting, high volume and difficult-to-fill niche roles. Experience includes non-profits (Safe Passage Project, GreenPeace, National Park Foundation, Columbia Land Trust), executive search (Koya Partners), consulting companies (TSMA Consulting, Formidable, Third Sector) and design firms (IDEO). Think of Heather as your outsourced in-house recruiter who can manage smaller tasks or an entire search process.
We are committed to working with thoughtful organizations making a real difference.
We are also committed to a recruiting process that reduces bias whenever and wherever possible — that means our application process will be different from others. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with questions.
