We help communities achieve
workplace gender equity
through action and education
WORKPLACE GENDER EQUITY is the adding of support or removal of barriers to counter obstructive cultures created by gender bias.
EQUITY IS DIFFERENT FROM EQUALITY, where everyone simply receives the same opportunities whether or not they can use them.
WORKPLACE GENDER EQUITY happens when employers value and reward all employees solely on the basis of their ability to contribute to the success of the company. In today’s culture, this requires some key principles, including:
COURAGE: Employers recognize that true company success often requires a break from conventional workplace models
DIVERSITY: Hiring managers use inclusive practices to attract and retain employees from a broad range of backgrounds
HUMANITY: Women and men are supported in balancing caregiving responsibilities with their work life, without negative repercussions in any form
For Individuals: Get Informed
