Paradigm For Parity ®:The Paradigm for Parity® coalition is committed to achieving a new norm in corporate leadership: one in which women and men of all races, cultures and backgrounds have equal power, status, and opportunity. Launched in 2016 with just 27 companies, the Paradigm for Parity coalition has tripled in size, and proudly has 129 CEOs from some of the world’s largest companies who have publicly committed to our solution. The coalition created the Paradigm for Parity® 5-Point Action Plan for corporations to accelerate the pace of gender equity in senior executive roles. This unique agenda defines bold and specific actions that, taken together and simultaneously implemented as a package, drive culture change and advance women into leadership. The Paradigm for Parity® coalition provides companies with a continuously evolving toolkit of resources and practice suggestions to help them achieve their diversity and inclusion goals. Through its sponsored face-to-face and virtual interactions between companies throughout the year, the coalition has established a community among its committed company CHROs and D&I leaders. These interactions are focused on best practice and insight sharing to help companies address the gender imbalance within their own workplaces. Follow us on Twitter using @p4parity to learn more.
