Pride Month 2021: We at Signium value diverse leadership
01 June 2021
The month of June is dedicated to the memory and ongoing struggle of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer communities (LGBTQ+) for equality. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the potential of a more just and equal society that we have yet to fully realize. We at Signium are convinced that diversity is not only a necessity but an opportunity.
The value in diversity is in accessing the resulting diversity of thought. Organizations that cultivate diversity of thought and harness the power of unique perspectives are achieving a competitive advantage through increased innovation and creativity.
We believe that diversity is often too narrowly conceived as gender balance. While we fully agree on the importance of appointing more successful business women in leadership positions, we also believe in factoring in other aspects of diversity. Geographic origin, nationality, religion, race, sexual orientation and the number of years of experience – all of these points shape people’s lives and careers.
We take pride in supporting candidates across the globe in taking the next step towards their individual professional goal. We are convinced that an inclusive culture where every person is listened to, feels respected and is valued, can unleash hidden qualities and will drive every individual to achieve their full potential.
As an international partnership with 150 partners worldwide, we know that making sure everyone is heard and represented is not an easy task. We strive to bring each of our partners’ individual perspectives together to create sustainable leadership solutions in the service of our clients and for the benefit of a more diverse workplace and society.
