About our Parity Certification

Created in 2017 with the pro bono support of McKinsey & Company, and the first of its kind in North America, the Parity Certification helps organizations increase the representation of women where they have historically been underrepresented, as well as in senior management positions. Accenture, Mercer, and WTW support the WiG team in the assessment of applications. The robust tool not only evaluates parity at the decision-making level of an organization, but also evaluate the implementation of mechanisms that enable women at all levels to achieve career advancement, creating a pipeline of female talent. Particular attention is also given to intersectionality to ensure that BIPOC, Indigenous, and LGBTQ2S+, as well as women with disabilities are sponsored, supported, and promoted. So far, the Parity Certification has directly impacted over 700,000 employees across Canada and the United States. Visit our Parity Certification microsite to learn more!

Join us and contribute to the advancement of parity, diversity, and inclusion!
