Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Our Inclusive, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) Policy

At crawfordconnect, we respect and value diversity in all its forms. We believe that voices from distinct backgrounds should be championed. We endeavor to build an inclusive and equitable non-profit sector where diverse leadership, staff, and volunteers  are empowered to help our non-profits clients live their values and achieve their mission. 


We promote IDEA.

As we seek leadership talent for our non-profit clients, we promote IDEA because a diverse and inclusive organization is one that not only attracts the best and brightest talent, but also creates a competitive advantage in terms of talent retention. We advocate for, and support board and staff level thinking to address the systemic barriers their organizations are constructed to tackle.


We are continuously learning.

In this ever-changing world, we are continuously upgrading our knowledge and skills through education. We are mindful of implementing key learnings to ensure we best practices in IDEA through the search process.


We work with you to share our knowledge.

We challenge unquestioned assumptions about what it takes to be a strong leader within non-profit organizations and who is well-positioned to provide leadership. We work with you, our clients, to ensure equitable and inclusive systems for being more intentional and conscious of bias during the hiring, promoting, or evaluation process. We improve our candidate pipeline by creating, implementing, and supporting programs and policies that foster diverse leadership.


Encouraging a culture of respect and tolerance.

crawfordconnect proudly embodies a sense of belonging where everyone is encouraged to bring their authentic selves to lead, create, and support sector change. We lead with respect and inclusion for all.
