Parity.Org® is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization
There are plenty of women and people of color at the bottom of organizations. But further up the ladder, their numbers decline precipitously due to a variety of complex and compounding factors. In addition to simply being unfair, this lack of diversity in leadership stifles innovation and profitability, while perpetuating income inequalities.
The parity problem is complex—but it’s not insurmountable.
As the leading impact organization working to increase representation of women and people of color in corporate leadership, Parity.Org provides straightforward, practical tools that work. We help companies of all kinds quickly and measurably move the needle through the following proven methods.
Hundreds of companies worldwide have taken our pledge, agreeing to interview and consider at least one qualified woman and one qualified person of color for every open VP, C-Suite, and Board role. And the results have been transformational.
Our proprietary framework is based on the proven practices of hundreds of our corporate partners that have not only reached—but sustained—parity in leadership. It provides specific and concrete tactics for creating the culture and conditions in which women and people of color can rise.
The most comprehensive yet affordable and easy-to-use platform of its kind, our ParityINDEX empowers companies with enlightening new data about their leadership diversity efforts—enabling them to identify previously invisible patterns and opportunities, measure and monitor progress, and benchmark their performance against others in their industries.
Our annual Parity.Org Best Companies for Women to Advance™ list (and upcoming Best Companies for People of Color to Advance™ list) recognizes organizations that have policies, benefits, and programs that eliminate barriers to advancement.
