PDA & STRIDES Strategic Alliance 

Join a Highly Qualified & Diverse Network of Prospective Board Members

Access to a diverse senior executive network is imperative as more private and public companies seek to diversify with the addition of more women, people of color, LGBTQ+, and other underrepresented voices into leadership roles.

STRIDES and the Private Directors Association (PDA) have forged a strategic alliance to further underrepresented executives' advancement and help companies harness this untapped diverse leadership talent to develop future board leaders.

Together, we are helping to level the playing field for diversifying leadership and, in turn, addressing one of the most pressing issues facing companies – access to a diverse network of verified C-suite executives, board members, and founders.

While STRIDES facilitates access to a senior executive network of women, people of color, and LGBTQ+, PDA provides access to board-level networking, director role opportunities, and the ability to enhance your boardroom knowledge and skills.

Together, PDA and STRIDES strive to advance our mission to promote diverse and inclusive boards and senior leadership.
