A Coalition to Change Corporate Culture

Who We Are

The Paradigm for Parity® Coalition.

The Paradigm for Parity® coalition represents current and former business leaders including CEOs, CHROs and DEI experts who are dedicated to addressing the systemic gender and racial gaps in the corporate sector. We partner with our companies to develop and promote strategies that transform corporate leadership to assure that women of all races, cultures and backgrounds have equal power and opportunity to advance.

Effective corporate leadership reflects the communities, employees, customers and stakeholders that they serve. And the data is clear that diversity in leadership is linked to improved performance, innovation and creating an inclusive environment where all workers are able to succeed, thrive and advance.

Women, and particularly women of color, often face barriers to advancing to corporate leadership. Through our programming, best practices, and resources — we provide companies with the intentional actions to elevate women.
