TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2018 – Think Research, a leading digital healthcare platform provider, today announced it has taken the ParityPledgeTM, building on its commitment to improving the pathway for women in leadership positions. The ParityPledge simply asks that companies commit to interviewing at least one qualified woman candidate for every open position, vice president and above, including the C-suite and board. No quotas. No deadlines. The ParityPledge is an initiative of Parity.org, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on bringing gender equality to the highest levels of business.
“Parity.org was founded to correct the stark reality of gender imbalance at the very top of companies today,” said Cathrin Stickney, Parity.org founder and CEO. “While women represent 51 percent of the population, barely 20 percent of S&P500 corporate executive teams and boards are represented by women. We are thankful for organizations like Think Research that are willing to become a role model for change. We believe their public commitment and example will help us realize exponential progress toward reaching parity at the top.”

“We’re tapping into an issue that so many companies are trying to get right. While much progress has been made at lower levels of organizations, the very top has remained elusive,” said Stickney. “We welcome all organizations – both big and small – that recognize the importance and benefits of a representative slate: a slate of candidates that reflects the population.”
