Equal Representation.

The Problem.

While there are plenty of women and people of color at the bottom of most organizations, further up the ladder, their numbers decline precipitously due to a variety of complex and compounding factors. This lack of diversity in leadership is not just unfair. It has been proven time and again to negatively impact decision-making, innovation, and profitability.

The ParityPLEDGE was a good push for us. It created heightened focus for diversity across the entire company. We started at the top, and it was intentional, believing that if you can't see it, you can't be it.
