What We Believe

we believe advancing women advances business

Research has shown that even in the most supportive, meritocracy-minded businesses unconscious bias impacts how companies are able to set up their employees to work, develop and advance their careers. As a result, gender inequity becomes operationalized into many of the company’s ways of working.

This creates significant lost sales, lost margin and employee turnover costs for the company, in addition to career setbacks for impacted employees.

It also creates a risk for companies to lose potential clients and investors. 70% of CEOS are now reviewing supplier diversity metrics when selecting service providers, and major financial institutions are starting to set minimum percentages of leadership roles that must be filled by women at the companies they invest in.

The most effective way to address this is by building partnerships between men and women to tackle gender inequity, tying actions directly to impacts with direct leadership accountability.

Through this approach, companies create new, self-sustaining ways of working that eliminate bias and create level playing fields for every role. This builds trust with employees, clients and investors that gender equity is a business priority.

Equally important, companies can capture the 3% incremental revenue that comes from every 1% increase in gender parity, the 26% higher return on invested capital from gender-balanced leadership, the 50% lower turnover rate from being a best company for women, and the 15% increased likelihood of outperforming competition by being gender-diverse at the top levels.
