BUSINESS OF EQUALITY

Equality is not a women’s issue. It is a social and economic imperative.

There is a clear business case for equality: Organizations that have at least 30% women in leadership roles are 12x more likely to excel financially.1 Collective action to improve gender parity could add a staggering $13 trillion to the global GDP by 2030.2 Despite this, the gender gaps continue to widen. Every leader has a responsibility — and an opportunity — to spearhead change within their organization.

The Business of Equality® creates a pathway for leaders to close the gaps across parity, policy, and pipeline. Through a suite of targeted solutions, we facilitate transformational change that drives to collective impact — and, ultimately, helps organizations achieve a higher return on equality (ROE).

PARITY

Companies must be transparent about inequities, such as the wage gap, to adjust strategies for hiring and retaining female talent and to be truly authentic.

POLICY

A culture of inclusivity gives rise to more innovative teams that better represent the mindset of the market and boosts a company’s bottom line.

PIPELINE

 To keep women in the pipeline and help them rise up to leadership positions, companies must have concrete strategies in place that account for every corporate level and life stage.
