2018 Corporate Pipeline

Since 2015, the first year of this study, corporate America has made almost no progress in improving women’s representation. From the outset, fewer women than men are hired at the entry level. And at every subsequent step, the representation of women further declines. Women of color are the most underrepresented group of all — behind white men, men of color, and white women.

What People Say About Us

Karen and Karina are key partners in delivering on our critical initiatives. Supporting and promoting women throughout our workforce is a chief priority and they’ve been with us every step of the way - from recruiting executive and professional talent to building an emerging PMO to expanding our geographic footprint. They bring a collective creativity, integrity, and sense of humor to every engagement. I consider them a trusted set of hands who deliver value early and often.

VP, People and Culture, Auction.com

"I hired Karen to build a highly-specialized engineering team because of her breadth of knowledge and networks. Prior to working with Karen, it was extremely challenging to find a diverse slate of candidates. With her help we built the team ahead of schedule. In addition to the great results, Karen was great to work with. I always loved getting calls from her to work through candidates. If I ever need to hire a recruiter again to build a team I will be calling Karen.”

Sean Kranzberg
Sr. Engineering Manager, Google

"Each time we partner with Karina she exceeds our exceptions - from her large network to the dynamic leadership programs she develops. Karina has something special. The network and connections that happen at her events are helping women in their careers and I’ve seen it firsthand. It’s a true pleasure to work with Karina.”

Leticia Mendoza
Community Empowerment Director, Univision Communications Inc.

Extremely important to me for my next career move was joining a company that actively supports and promotes women. Karen was very forthcoming and supportive from the beginning. Her professional nature, thorough knowledge about the opportunity, and effort to maintain transparency throughout the process was impressive.
