It's your safe place to build;
Connections: Develop real relationships
Careers: Access opportunities
Community: Each one teaches one
Community is everything, and we live by an old Jamaican saying "Each one teaches one", the magic happens you connect and strengthen your network; at EQ, we have mixed this with meaningful opportunities from companies committed to cultivating an inclusive environment.
In summary, EQ is the space to support each other, learn to engage in meaningful dialogue, and access hidden opportunities.
Meeting professionals that care about helping each other progress & accessing exclusive opportunities, e.g. roles (usually under the radar with search firms) - particularly Board & Senior level roles. The combined salaries of all the open roles from our member companies exceed $550+ million, with around $6+ billion in share options (based on current value). Our goal is to ensure that professionals benefit from these opportunities, and along the way, build a community that looks out for each other.
We believe that Equity, Equality and Emotional Intelligence (commonly known as Emotional Quotient, or EQ) are values that every individual and company should champion to create real, sustainable change and foster a more inclusive world of work. A diverse and inclusive workforce results in greater innovation, creativity, profitability, and competitive advantage. If we all champion these values and help each other, everyone wins.
We work with companies that have expressed a strong interest in cultivating an Inclusive workforce to support their talent needs, reinforce their D&I employer value proposition, and connect them with our community professionals.
