PARADIGM FOR PARITY ® PROFIT & LOSS LEADERSHIP ACCELERATOR PROGRAM

Introduced in 2022, this signature program is a multi-pronged 6-month development program designed to fast-track women, regardless of the stage of their career, and particularly multicultural women, into senior operating roles that eventually lead to the C-Suite. The program leverages a simulation-centric design to increase retention and enhance talent development. We would like to thank CVS, Merck and Adecco for their support as pilot sponsors. Their contributions to launching this program have benefitted so many of the participants already.

WOMEN ON THE RISE

August 26th is Women’s Equality Day – a day that marks the ratification of the 19th amendment, which afforded many women the right to vote. This important day in history serves as a reminder of the work women have done to achieve equity in places of power in society and corporate America.  To honor this day, each year, Paradigm for Parity® proudly highlights “Women on the Rise” from our coalition members — innovators who are breaking barriers in corporate leadership and showing the value of gender parity and racial equity in the workforce.
