(LEAP). Diversified Search, an executive search firm, is a founding partner of the Alliance and serves as advisor and facilitator. The ABD’s mission is to enhance shareholder value in Fortune 500 companies by promoting inclusion of women and minorities on corporate boards.
As part of our mission to inform society and empower communities, LEAP launched in 2009 a research initiative to assess the current API representation at the highest levels of leadership positions in various sectors of our society (Board of Directors) in the corporate, nonprofit, and foundation sectors.
