Diversity is essential to an effective and equitable working environment, yet marginalized communities remain systemically underrepresented and excluded in professional settings. DNA specializes in placing the top 10% Black, Indigenous People of Color, Women, LGBTQs, Veterans, and Disabled professionals at the executive level. Groups seeking to create a diverse legacy organization within their company can count on DNA Diversity Executive Search to provide top talent.
As the child of two low-income Haitian immigrants in Montreal, Canada, Ruth Dorsainville overcame huge odds to achieve the life that society told her was successful, working her way from living in a women’s shelter to becoming a VP of a merger and acquisition recruiting firm on Wall Street. Still, after having “made it,” something still felt missing. Stepping away from her secure job to invest in her passions, Ruth founded her own diversity-forward recruiting firm, allowing her to empower immigrants like her parents to gain professional mobility.
DNA Diversity Executive Search is driven by a passion for diversity and thriving in an employment equity environment. The firm offers creative approaches to recruiting people of color, anti racism training, leadership training, inclusive talent management, and diversity mentorship, making them the premier resource for companies looking to become more equitable.
Much of Ruth’s inspiration comes from her experiences coming from an immigrant family, as well as her role model Tony Robbins. Through these experiences, she has developed herself as a successful entrepreneur who thrives in new environments. By utilizing her skills and building up marginalized communities, Dorsainville has successfully assisted minorities in the workplace and created a more equitable environment.
Learning through her experiences as a black woman, Ruth now dedicates herself to helping other black women and people from other marginalized groups to help get ahead and build their careers. She has written books, given motivational speeches, and founded the DNA Legacy Group – all of which foster more inclusion within these marginalized communities. Dorsainville’s work inspires many and she plans to continue upon this journey for the rest of her life.
DNA Legacy is heavily involved in recruitment and career building overall. Ruth Dorsainville believes that there is only one race — the human race — and wants to make the world a better place by helping in the recruitment of employees from diverse backgrounds and other diversity and inclusion efforts. She plans to continue this mission to help others for the rest of her life and create a more equitable world.
