Griffith Group Executive Search Observes Orange Shirt Day and 3rd Annual National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

Griffith Group Executive Search offices are closed on September 30th, 2022 in honour of Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family, and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, and to promote the concept of Every Child Matters. On the same day, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation honours the children lost and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities.

We recognize that widespread public commemoration and acknowledgement of the tragic and painful history, continued impact, and intergenerational trauma of Canada’s residential school legacy is a vital component of both the reconciliation process, and our own (un)learning journey in support of decolonization.

Why We Change Our Logo for Pride Month

And how we know a logo isn’t enough.

With histories rooted in protest, led by trans people of colour activists, Pride Month is a time to not only celebrate the achievements of queer and trans people, but also recognize the current climate of violence that exists for the 2SLGBTQI+ community.

Every June, Griffith Group Executive Search changes its logo to represent to all people that Griffith Group is a safe place for 2SLGBTQI+ employees, candidates, clients, and beyond. And we also recognize that a logo change isn’t enough.

We have formalized policies against discrimination in the workplace. We are a Rainbow Registered business, a thorough accreditation process by Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) that indicates that Griffith Group has met stringent standards to ensure that all of our practices are welcoming, accepting, and celebratory of the 2SLGBTQI+ community.

Further, our commitment to Indigenization, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility is steadfast and cornerstone to our mission and vision – and that we recognize how intersectionality is critical to understanding the fight for 2SLGBTQI+ lives and freedom. At Griffith Group, we believe in acting against injustice and believe in working with organizations that share our mission. Finally, we also donate money to local, national, and global organizations who are actively working to protect queer and trans people and communities.

Griffith Group Executive Search Celebrates its 3rd Anniversary

Thank you so much to everyone who has and continues to support us. Since our founding, we’ve seen tremendous growth. Our team has grown to new heights – filled with professionals whose career paths span from executive search, to human resources, to academia and education technology, to not-for-profit and fundraising work, to private sector sales and operations. We feel privileged to have our collective experiences driving our client services and internal operations.
In the last two years, we have continued to increase our capacity for executive search engagements, while prioritizing partnerships with equity-centered organizations and institutions. We continue to question and break the boundaries of how executive search firms recognize talent and ensure that all processes are bias- and barrier-free. With intentional partnerships with organizations and institutions with similar commitments, Griffith Group’s impact is not only ensuring I-EDIA remains fundamental to our work, but it also means changing the very nature of senior leadership itself. While inclusion for us is indeed about representation, it is also very much about changing the way things “have been done” by prioritizing the way they could be, if given the chance, imagination, and opportunity. We are grateful to continue this work in disrupting the recruitment industry.

As we celebrate our second anniversary, we also want to offer so much gratitude and appreciation to our Griffith Group Advisory Council, Kim Carlin, Thompson Egbo-Egbo, Sunil Hirjee, Geoff Roberts, Allison Sandmeyer-Graves, Newsha Zargaran, and Jacqueline Foley for your continued guidance and support. Thank you, also, to our partner organizations and institutions for your unwavering trust in our processes and team. We could not do what we do without you, and we feel very fortunate to work with such passionate, kind, and driven people and organizations.

And finally, thank you to our amazing Griffith Group team. We asked our team to share what their favourite part of working at Griffith Group was, and the answers ranged from the work that we do (“Supporting Not-for-Profits secure effective, inspirational leadership”), to our values (“Ethical,” “Progressive,” “Conscientious,” “Compassionate”), to our senior leaders’ leadership style (“the mentorship and support to expand my career as my strengths and interests grow”), the most common response, hands-down, came down to one line: the best team ever.

In celebration, we are happy to introduce our new company tagline that we feel now perfectly captures the Griffith Group Executive Search experience: International Reach. Proven Expertise. Boutique Service.
