DDJ Myers recognizes the value of diversity in multiple dimensions; we believe that a talented and diverse workforce is a key competitive advantage for both our clients and our company. Our ongoing business success is a reflection of the quality and skill of our people and of our commitment to proactively honor diversity in client engagements and our hiring practices. We are committed to seeking out and retaining the finest human talent, deeply listening to the cares and concerns of all humans, and treating all humans with life-sustaining dignity and respect.

Proactively seeing diversity is a way of life at DDJ Myers. Our search strategies include mechanisms to find professionals with diverse backgrounds, our leadership programs are designed to share and act upon diverse perspectives constructively, and our board development programs encourage diversity amongst board members for the sake of serving a diverse membership. Education courses include practices that expand student mindsets.

Diversity has many dimensions, including ethnicity, gender, language, age, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, physical and mental ability, thinking styles, experience, and education. The DDJ Myers coaches and executive search consultants are certified in programs that teach diversity thinking as a way of being innovative, inclusive, and wholly human. We are diligent in creating and fostering a supportive and understanding environment, so all humans can realize and act upon their maximum potential, while still honoring differences.

We encourage our employees to engage in community work with distinct demographic groups who have long been disadvantaged. We recognize that racism, ageism, sexism, religious preferences, and other forms of discrimination are problems in our society as a whole. We are committed to challenging cultural stereotypes.

DDJ Myers has a diverse population of ownership, coaches, consultants, and recruiters. We believe that the world is not homogeneous, and we, therefore, strive to be role models for our children, clients, and communities. We offer employees flexible working time arrangements, education assistance, open communications, mentor programs, and require 40 hours of employee education every two years. Each DDJ Myers employee has their personal purpose statement on their business card that reflects their unique way of serving the world at large. We believe and strive each day to treat all humans with embodied respect and dignity.
