Gender Parity by 2030

The Paradigm for Parity® coalition is comprised of business leaders, board members and academics committed to addressing the corporate leadership gender gap. The coalition is differentiated by three factors: (1) a commitment from the top, (2) a clear plan of action that drives impact, and (3) mutual accountability for measurable results. It is the first organization of its kind to outline a specific set of actions that, when implemented concurrently, will accelerate the pace of achieving gender parity. The Paradigm for Parity® 5-Point Action Plan will catalyze change and enable committed companies to more effectively increase the number of women of all backgrounds in leadership positions.
