At Stage 4 Solutions, diversity is a given, and a key strength. 40% of our team are minority professionals and 50% are women. We strongly believe talents, skills and experiences come in many “packages”, and each professional can further our clients’ goals. And, though valuing and achieving diversity is the norm at Stage 4 Solutions, we recognize the need for many organizations to make improvements.
We work with our clients to not only help them achieve business objectives, but also to meet diversity goals. We work hard to bring the most qualified and diverse set of candidates for each role, at each client. In this way, our clients can select the candidates who enhance team diversity and also achieve their team’s objectives.
We understand there are barriers – both overt and subconscious – to achieving a diverse employee base, and we want to help showcase best practices, provide training and promote conversations that inspire management and employees, at all levels, to more consciously pursue developing environments that are more fair and accepting of all professionals. We are excited to continue providing value to these initiatives with Santa Clara University’s Silicon Valley Executive Center.
