Diversity

Advancing diversity and inclusion

Ccentric Group believes a culture of diversity and inclusion, where the entire range of human experience is welcomed and celebrated, can strengthen and transform organisations. We strive to model this belief in our work and service to our clients.

It is fundamental to excellent performance in all organisations, especially those in the healthcare, academic, digital health and not-for-profit sectors committed to improving the quality of life. It is imperative that their leadership reflects the diversity and inclusiveness of their customers, staff, and stakeholders.

Ccentric Group recognises and has adopted a range of practices to advance our commitment, including The Diversity Code of Conduct developed by the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), The Athena Swan initiative in the higher education sector, and the ‘30% Club’, a worldwide movement aiming for a minimum 30% female representation on the Boards of organisations as well as executive positions.

The Diversity Council of Australia’s paper, ‘Diversity Benchmarking and Inclusion Practices in Australia’, noted the top two drivers for diversity in Australian organisations are to (1) better position themselves to recruit and retain talent (68%), and (2) to be an employer of choice (59%). As an executive search firm, such drivers closely align with our service offering, therefore we recognise the core role we play in promoting diversity and inclusion.

Take part in our survey

As a leading executive search firm, Ccentric believes in promoting diversity and inclusion. Data on various aspects of diversity is not readily available therefore we have developed a brief anonymous survey which we invite you to participate in.

The survey will provide us with insights into the experience and make up of the candidate population at the leadership level across healthcare, academia, digital health and not-for-profit sectors. The survey tool we are using ensures results are aggregated and therefore anonymous at the individual level.

The survey is totally voluntary and you only need to answer the specific questions you wish to.  It will take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

We plan to regularly publicise the research results on our website and in our newsletter so you will be able to view the aggregated results yourself.
