Campbell & Company Recognized in Top 10 Executive Search Firms for Women of Color

CHICAGO, IL – March 6, 2024 – Campbell & Company, an employee-owned national consulting firm, announces it has been named one of the Top 10 Executive Search Firms for Women of Color for the third consecutive year. This annual program was created by WOC to help women of color gain equal access to job opportunities and recruitment processes.

“Campbell & Company thanks WOC for this recognition and for the valued work they do in the talent community,” states Kris McFeely, Managing Director, Executive Search at Campbell & Company. “We are honored to partner with nonprofits that advance justice, opportunity, and equity throughout our society—and we are proud to bring this same commitment to our search processes.”

The results of Campbell & Company searches reflect our commitment to diversity and equity. 100% of our pools yield diverse candidates. 52% of our overall placements are people of color, and 79% of our overall placements identify as female.

WOC surveyed its members and executive search firms that specialize in or conduct searches within the nonprofit or social sector, identifying ten national firms that are especially noteworthy for their approach to and results when working with women of color. WOC engaged Shinyoung Park, a doctoral candidate at Indiana University Lilly School of Philanthropy for the independent compilation of the ranked list of Top 10 Executive Search Firms for Women of Color.

Search firms and WOC members were asked similar questions to provide a perspective from both sides of an engagement. WOC members were also asked to provide their feedback about firms they engaged as representatives of nonprofit or social sector organizations working to fill a position.

“This recognition inspires us to keep going with our commitments to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in our firm and across the nonprofit sector, including the advancement and support of women of color leading and working in the sector, ”says Campbell & Company Co-President Kate Roosevelt.

WOC published Top 10 Executive Search Firms that Work for Women of Color on February 29, 2024. Visit for more information.
