MISSION

We represent our social sector clients with integrity and authenticity, systemically building their capacity through humble inquiry, strategic guidance, and by placing the right people in the right roles at the right time. Through all our work, we strive to lift up the entire sector while preserving its professionals' dignity as they navigate their careers. 

INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, EQUITY + ACCESS

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access are imperatives that drive our every move.

 

Cooper Coleman is an LGBTQ+ owned business that embraces demographic, experiential, sexual, ability, and cultural inclusion. We believe everyone is better when leadership reflects the diversity of its people and when an organization reflects the diversity of those it serves.

 

Our partnerships with every client embrace and prioritize the value of achieving a diverse candidate pool inclusive of all identities. We believe the most qualified candidates are selected from the most diverse representation of talent. Qualified candidates from all backgrounds and identities are included in our candidate sourcing practices, among which are process and compensation transparency. We are resourceful in our deployment and advertisement of job opportunities across diverse professional and social networks—online and offline—to reach every possible qualified and interested candidate.

Our team is individually and collectively committed to inclusion, anti-racism, and equality. Each of us is working to improve our understanding of others' lived experiences, expand our networks' diversity,  and contribute to an equitable society.
