Hundreds of companies worldwide have taken our ParityPLEDGE for Women and/or our ParityPLEDGE for People of Color—a public commitment to interview at least one qualified woman and/or person of color for every open VP, C-Suite, and Board position. That's it. No deadlines. No hiring quotas. Yet the results are transformational.
Why does it work? Women and people of color tend to be significantly underrepresented on most candidate slates, due to unconscious bias, sourcing in the wrong places, and other factors that are wholly unrelated to talent, desire, and expertise. And if they're not in the running, they can't win. But when companies become intentional and proactive about diversifying their interview pools, they frequently find that the "best person for the job" is in fact one of those previously unexplored candidates!
