“Chief’s membership pool has some of the most successful and capable women leaders in business. Chief is uniquely positioned to accelerate better representation, not only for this generation, but generations to come”
Rich Talent Group has a proven track record of elevating diversity across executive teams and boards. Last year, 86 percent of people that Rich Talent Group recruited to operating roles — VP level and above — were women, people of color and/or LGBTQ. And 100 percent of those recruited to board roles were women and/or people of color. The two organizations will work together at this critical inflection point to accelerate their shared vision and redefine parity in business.
“Companies are rightfully looking for ways to diversify their senior management, and Chief’s network of outstanding women has the power to level the playing field from the top-down,” said Carolyn Childers, co-founder and CEO of Chief. “Through this partnership with Rich Talent Group, a company we’ve long admired for building diverse leadership and placing more women and women of color into positions of power, we intend to make equity and inclusion the new normal in executive leadership and board meetings.”

Diversity in leadership has never been more important, and Chief is doubling down on its founding mission of getting more powerful women a seat at the table.
Chief’s highly-vetted community of leadership talent makes it uniquely positioned to connect outstanding women with companies that are genuinely invested in increasing the diversity and inclusion of their executive teams. While many Chief members are already serving on boards, the vast majority are interested in joining another (or their first) board.
With this partnership, Rich Talent Group will be able to tap into qualified candidates within the Chief network for executive and board opportunities. Additionally, Chief and Rich Talent Group will launch a Board Readiness Intensive Workshop Series to provide actionable information, resources, and exposure to board opportunities.
“Chief’s membership pool has some of the most successful and capable women leaders in business. Chief is uniquely positioned to accelerate better representation, not only for this generation, but generations to come,” said Jana Rich, Founder of Rich Talent Group. “We look forward to partnering with Chief as they continue to pave the way for a growing, influential community of women.”
