Equal Representation. Now.

Parity.org is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization

The problem we are trying to solve.

There are plenty of women and people of color at the bottom of a company. It’s when they start to advance up the corporate ladder that they begin to leave or be displaced, and their numbers drop off dramatically.

We solve it through these four methods.


The commitment

The typical starting place for most companies – commit to strive for parity.


The roadmap

The roadmap to reaching gender & racial parity in any company.


The measurement

Tracking progress toward parity. If you don’t measure it, you can’t improve it.


The recognition

Recognizing the best companies and their best practices.

The ParityPledge®

It’s time for gender and racial parity.

Our goal is simple—we ask organizations to commit to interview and consider at least one qualified woman and person of color for every open role, VP and higher, including the C-Suite and the Board. That’s it. No quotas. No deadlines.

The Parity Model™

The roadmap to gender and racial parity in your company.

The Parity Model™ is a framework created to help companies understand the three key paths to a diverse and inclusive culture that enables women and people of color to rise in their organization.

The ParityINDEX®

The ParityINDEX® is a private score and dashboard of gender and racial parity within an organization. It is the new KPI to measure the health of a company’s diversity program and benchmark it against others in their industry.

ParityPledge in support of people of color

Parity.org® launched with a mission to create equal representation in corporate leadership with the ParityPledge® in Support of women and, in 2020 added a ParityPledge in Support of People of Color in response to the racial unrest in the country.

Patrice Louvet
CEO, Ralph Lauren

Nasdaq took the ParityPledge® in 2017 and since then we have fulfilled that pledge by addressing all open roles VP and higher.

Since then, in just two and a half years, 50% of all new executive hires have been women. We are very proud of our progress.

Supriya Jha
SVP Diversity & Inclusion, Nasdaq

The ParityPledge® was a good push for us. It created heightened focus for gender 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.
