2023 Pro Bono Program: Applications Open!


At DRG, we are dedicated to supporting purpose-driven organizations committed to making an impact in their communities. In 2019, DRG launched its first pro bono Executive Search to support an organization in identifying and recruiting its next senior leader. This year, we are extending our services to partner with organizations in the healthcare space.

For 37 years, DRG has collaborated with nonprofits to understand their culture and values and support a talent infrastructure that allows the organization to thrive. Our expertise includes both executive search and talent services, which involves customized recruitment strategy, organizational consulting, and overall ensuring team effectiveness. To further our impact, we are offering complimentary salary benchmarking reporting with our executive search services.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

DRG is committed to making a difference in the talent sector by maintaining a deep and intentional focus on equity in everything we do and how we do it. As part of our team, we have an internal DEI consultant who leads anti-oppression trainings on race, gender, LGBTQIA+, disability justice, and other topics to educate our team and inform our equity strategy. This work grounds us in the understanding that if we do not look inward, we have no right to look outward.  We take what we learn and try to incorporate an equity lens in all of our services. We have an organizational psychologist to ensure that we design talent- assessments with thoughtful questions that help to remove cultural, gender, and other biases. We lead our clients through Interviewing with Reduced Bias training – challenging all interviewers to identify, call out, and avoid bias around decision making. Our customized research and outreach strategies identify candidates from commonly marginalized communities to ensure that we identify the best talent reflecting a diversity of race, ethnicities, religion, backgrounds, and experiences.
