We are on a mission to diversify executive leadership

AboveBoard is an inclusive executive hiring platform that connects senior executives with exclusive leadership opportunities.

Today, executives and companies are limited by two search options:

1. Retained executive
search firms
2. Leveraging
personal networks
Both of these options are inherently exclusionary. They rely on existing connections and networks that often leave out marginalized groups of executives—including candidates who are Black, Latinx/Hispanic, and women—contributing to their underrepresentation in the executive ranks. In the end, both companies and executives are missing out.

This is why AboveBoard exists. We are a new resource in executive hiring—working to shift from traditional closed-network processes to an open and fair model that prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We’re addressing the lack of diversity in leadership head-on

The most effective way to fulfill our mission of diversifying executive leadership is to simply pull back the curtain. 

That’s why AboveBoard utilizes an innovative model that supports both executives and the hiring companies recruiting them. Our platform uncovers traditionally hidden opportunities, connecting untapped networks of talented candidates to today’s leading companies and organizations.

This is why AboveBoard works

We believe that long-lasting and impactful change starts at the top. We also recognize that efforts toward inclusivity and equity are ongoing and ever-evolving. As AboveBoard grows day-to-day, so do our learnings about how to best serve our community. What doesn’t change, however, is our dedication to our mission.

By making executive leadership more reflective of the world we live in, we are encouraging fairer hiring practices, more inclusive decision-making amongst leadership, and better service from society’s top leaders and influences. Click below to get involved.
