the vision

Our beginnings

Diversity Recruiters™ was launched in 2018 to directly address the lack of diversity recruiting efforts in the Pacific Northwest.


The vision was simple – to make sure employers and their leaders were reflective of their communities.


Many  employers continue to struggle  with inclusion and diversity.


With this in mind, Diversity Recruiters™ was launched. It has grown from a boutique firm, serving employers in the surrounding Seattle region, to expanding its services internationally.
