The Parity Model

In today’s world, a company’s brand equals their values.

In today’s world, a company’s brand equals their values. More companies than ever are realizing that diversity is a key business performance indicator, but some aren’t sure where to start. That’s where The Parity Model® can help. The Parity Model was developed from research and conversations with hundreds of CEOs, CHROs, diversity leaders, and recruiters since launching our mission to create equal representation in leadership. By embracing this model, a new, better corporate culture can emerge.

What is the Parity Model?

The Parity Model is a framework created to help companies understand the three pillars to a diverse and inclusive culture that enables women and people of color to rise in their organization. The foundation for parity is built on Representation, Equality, and Inclusion. When companies create equality in practices, inclusion in culture, and representation in leadership, they find that getting to gender or racial parity isn’t a challenge–it’s the natural result of best practices.
