NEW YORK, July 8, 2021 — The Board Challenge, a movement to accelerate representation for Black leaders on the boards of U.S. companies, announced today that Snagajob, the country’s largest and fastest-growing platform for hourly work, has signed on as a Pledge Partner. By joining The Board Challenge, Snagajob commits to adding a Black director to its board within the next 12 months.

Valence and theBoardlist, co-founders of The Board Challenge, will provide free slates of top director candidates tailored to Snagajob’s board search criteria to strengthen and expedite the company’s recruitment efforts.

“I am pleased to count Snagajob among our Pledge Partners and to collaborate to identify quality candidates for their open board seat,” said Sheryl Hilliard Tucker, executive director of The Board Challenge. “We are seeing real momentum in the push to diversify corporate boards. I continue to advocate for all companies to tap into the vast pipeline of qualified, board-ready Black talent.”

Snagajob joins companies including Zillow, Amperity, Accolade and Nextdoor as Pledge Partners. The Board Challenge has 75+ Partners and Supporters in total who are working across industries to make board diversity a business imperative.

“We know board diversity is a strategic advantage, and believe a variety of perspectives enhances board performance and company success,” Snagajob CEO Mathieu Stevenson said. “Snagajob is excited to partner with the Board Challenge to be part of the movement to increase Black director representation on our own board, while encouraging others to do the same. We hope more of our employees, customers and hourly workers can see themselves on a board one day, and this is an important step toward making that a reality.”

Both public and private U.S. companies are encouraged to take The Board Challenge pledge. Companies that already have at least one Black director are invited to join as Charter Partners and tap their networks to motivate other organizations to take action.
