SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Black Progress Matters [BPM], an organization dedicated to changing the color of executive suites and boardrooms worldwide, is proud to announce a successful partnership with Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies. Black Progress Executive Staffing [BPX] helped Glassdoor fill two key roles—Chief People and Diversity Officer Danny Guillory and Senior Director of Total Rewards Cicely Clayton—to help further Glassdoor’s commitment to advancing Black leadership within their organization.
The partnership marks a milestone for BPM as it seeks to provide more opportunities for leaders of color in the executive suite and corporate boardroom. BPM’s Core Mission is built on the premise that if BP Executive Staffing [BPX] can secure the opportunity to fill an executive opening for an organization with a qualified and appropriate Black candidate, we can change the color of the executive suite while enhancing the aspiration of everyone of color within the organization.
“A really important priority for us is getting greater diversity within our leadership team and how we operate as an employer that embraces diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor’s Chief Executive Officer. “I love the Black Progress Matters mission, and they were able to help support us and deliver on two key hires across our leadership team.”
This new partnership with BPM signals Glassdoor’s continued dedication to creating a leadership team that reflects their organization’s diverse range of people.
Organizations require diversity in leadership to add perspective and effectiveness as their employee base becomes increasingly more diverse. While there has been encouraging growth in Black professionals in the workplace, many organizations are struggling with diversity at the executive and boardroom level – and delivering Black leadership in both the executive suite and boardroom is key to BPM’s mission.
“At BPM,” said CEO Dean Haynesworth, “we are proud to partner with Glassdoor on its quest to foster meaningful change in the workplace—a change which will ultimately empower individuals from all backgrounds while making businesses stronger.”
