The Super Diversity Institute is excited to announce a new partnership. Frank & The Knowledge Hunters will be the exclusive Executive search sponsor of The Superdiversity Institute. Frank & The Knowledge Hunters are one of New Zealand’s leading evidence-based Executive Search specialists. 

Directors Geoffrey McDowell & Howard Ross say: Our model, focusing on precision, evidence-based research, and meticulous attention to detail is perfectly suited to the modern-day Director search.  We seek to discover exceptional Directors who meet the cultural, skills and experience considerations, but who also bring the diversity of thought needed to help guide companies into the future.

We see Board diversity as being achieved when Boards have a balance and mix of skills, knowledge, experience, and a range of diversity dimensions, to foster constructive debate and avoid groupthink within the Boardroom.

In launching our Director Search offering, we have aligned ourselves with Mai Chen and the Superdiversity Institute.  In our independent research into what Boards are seeking, the critical finding is that diversity of thought is a ‘must-have’.  This is emphatically aligned with the kaupapa that Mai and the Superdiversity institute is fostering.

We are excited to be working with Mai, her team and the Superdiversity Institute to help achieve the ‘diversity dividend’ goal, in this case through the promotion of diversity in the Boardroom by searching for and supporting the appointment of Directors with an innate ability to think differently.

Nga mihi,

Mai Chen
Chair of the Superdiversity Institute
