Accolades for JBK Associates

JBK Associates, the Leader in Diversity Talent Acquisition

Our position on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.


The country and business community are at a watershed moment where the conversations around diversity and inclusion are more open and comprehensive today than ever before.

This mission holds tremendous relevance with incredible timeliness, as our firm has been a fore-front leader in this conversation and action since our founding 20 years ago. We are a certified woman-owned, executive search firm, that hails deep expertise in the DEI talent arena long before these conversations were apparent…and we were the pioneers! It has been a long journey but we are encouraged to see what is taking place today. As the industry leader in this space, we are not only experts in placing diverse candidates with a success rate of over 70% year over year, but as important, we are skilled at having the conversations that help our clients retain the candidates they have worked so hard to attract, supporting their continued desire to achieve even greater organizational inclusion.

In this time, at this moment, more so than ever before, companies are striving to make the thought of a diverse and inclusive workforce a reality and because of our long-tenured experience, we are uniquely positioned to support this mission.

We welcome the opportunity to connect with you so we may provide you with the deep details that could lead you and your company to a watershed moment.
