A message from our President & CEO

We are all angered and saddened by the ongoing rise in violent and hateful acts being committed against our Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) and Asian communities in the United States and other countries around the world. To our colleagues, clients, friends and family members who are experiencing feelings of hurt, fear and grief, we are here to support you.

As a global community, we have a shared responsibility to use our platform and resources to combat racism, bigotry and xenophobia in all forms. There are deep-rooted systems of racial inequality and social injustice that must be addressed – change must happen. On this, Heidrick & Struggles stands united with our AAPI, Asian, Black, Indigenous & People of Color (BIPOC), Latinx and LGBTQ communities, and all those who are not fully included in society.

We are committed to our employees and our clients – to listen and to offer a safe and supportive environment where we can have open and difficult conversations on racism, prejudice and bias, not just now, but on an ongoing basis. We will learn and do the hard work. We will open doors, create new opportunities, encourage and elevate those who too often have been overlooked, marginalized, or discriminated against in the workplace.

As a global leadership advisory firm, we are dedicated to building diverse leadership teams and organizations, and to creating inclusive cultures and workplaces – where all voices are heard, where all individuals feel safe, valued and accepted, and where all are able to thrive and achieve equitable success. We are unwavering in our commitment to develop meaningful ways to use our voice, our resources and our platform to combat racism, prejudice and discrimination.
