Founded in 2016 by a group of current and former business leaders, the Paradigm for Parity® coalition supports companies around the world in achieving their commitment to gender parity including racial equity in corporate leadership.
In partnership with our member company executives and recognized experts, Paradigm for Parity® promotes strategies that transform corporate culture to enable women of all races, cultures and backgrounds to have equal power and opportunity. The coalition’s 5-Point Action Plan provides an actionable solution to catalyze change and assure that today’s business executives develop the best future leaders.
Companies with more than 30% women executives are more likely to outperform companies with smaller representations of women leaders. (McKinsey)
And yet, as of March 2022, there are only 31 women in CEO positions in S&P 500 companies. (Catalyst)
Women of color make up 4% of C-Suite and Senior Vice President-level roles. (McKinsey)
Our 5-Point Action Plan is a roadmap of specific actions that when implemented simultaneously, will catalyze change to secure the best leaders of tomorrow.
