Yardstick Management Welcomes Shannon Hassler as a Principal Consultant

Yardstick Management, a leading black-owned consulting firm, has appointed Shannon Hassler as a Principal Consultant. In her new role, she will lead the company’s executive search practice. She will also serve as a key member of the team’s diversity, equity, and inclusion practice, where she will be in charge of developing effective ways to drive diversity in critical roles. Hassler joins Yardstick Management with over 20 years of executive talent acquisition and management advisory experience. She holds a J.D. from Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago-Kent College of Law, and her B.S. from Northern Illinois University. In a press release, Yardstick Founder and Managing Partner Dr. Ebbie Parsons stated, “We are elated to welcome Shannon into the Yardstick team. She brings a jolt in inclusive executive search that complements our strategic work with clients.” Hassler said, “The companies that truly get it, and that fundamentally know why diversity and inclusion matters, understand that they will lose in a competitive marketplace if they are not doggedly committed to leading from the front on this. It’s essential that they address these issues holistically, and accept that it starts from things as seemingly simple as how roles are described, to actions that undeniably demonstrate what the organization stands for at its core. This is where Yardstick is a game-changer, not only supporting clients with the fundamentals, including world-class experts guiding leaders in understanding and mitigating bias, but also with guidance through innovative ground-up and leadership-led changes.”
