Show Notes:

Bringing diversity to executive search is one of Audeliss’ core missions. In this episode,  Adam Torres and Felicity Hassan, Managing Director at Audeliss and INvolve, explore Audeliss’ approach to diversity in executive search.

About Felicity Hassan

She leads two businesses out of New York: Audeliss is a retained search firm that works to level the playing field for diverse talent in the Executive suite and Board room; INvolve is a membership and advisory firm looking to drive inclusion and belonging. She started her career in London and moved to New York in 2008 where she had the opportunity to partner with a great Executive Search firm to build out their Corporate Governance practice. Her focus expanded significantly when she moved in-house to build out the global talent acquisition team for Bloomberg and subsequently Audible, an Amazon company. Leading Talent Acquisition in-house provided a unique insight into the strategic priorities of our clients and where search can fall short, Audeliss offers thoughtful partnership committed to creating an authentic, diverse and innovative workplace.

In addition to leading Audeliss and INvolve she also sits on the CEO council for NICSA/The Diversity Project and co-Chair of the Advisory Council for WBC (The Women’s Business Collaborative). She’s an active member of Luminary NYC and incredibly grateful for the ability to partner with a plethora of other non profit organizations as they collectively seek equal pay and opportunity for all. They have experienced bold strides in diversity and inclusion over the past few decades but they still have a long road ahead! As a mother of two and a member of a mixed race family, their dual purpose to recruit and retain difference, resonates personally and professionally. They are committed to driving an agenda that will remove bias and expedite the pace of change.

About Audeliss

Audeliss is a completely different executive search firm. 

In 2011, Audeliss sprang from a conviction that client and candidate care across the executive search industry just wasn’t good enough, and that someone needed to step up and raise the bar. So they undertook this challenge and ditched the needless jargon and gimmicks, focused on building real relationships, and fundamentally, they wanted people to enjoy the experience of working with an executive search firm. Their purpose is to level the playing field for diverse leaders for executive and non-executive roles.

They are the destination for diverse talent, and a refreshing alternative to the tired, uninspiring offer of mainstream competitors. Their progressive, visionary business is structured around four fundamental areas:

• Board Practice

• Executive Search

• Interim Management

• Market Intelligence

Colourful where others are grey, bold where others are staid, they guarantee to create meaningful encounters between exceptional talent and progressive organisations – and they’ve built an impressive reputation on our results.
