March 30 2022. Melbourne, Australia. Culture Amp today announces it has signed up as a founding member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Parity Alliance, a cross-industry group of global organizations that are taking holistic action to accelerate diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the workplace and beyond.
The Global Parity Alliance seeks to promote DE&I best practices that benefit underrepresented groups and are hardwired across business processes – including creating equitable work opportunities, promoting supplier diversity and launching inclusive products and services.
The Global Parity Alliance’s vision is to drive better and faster DE&I improvements by sharing what works, raising each other’s aspirations, and elevating DE&I actions across companies beyond the Alliance.
“An integral part of accelerating the movement for the “S” in ESG will come from building truly diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces, value chains and products. The Global Parity Alliance is the platform for CEOs to lead the charge on DE&I, set ambitious targets, learn from the best lighthouse examples and inspire others to join a growing movement. As labor markets recover, DE&I must be at the heart of a new future of work", said Saadia Zahidi, Managing Director at the World Economic Forum.
Developed with leading Chief Human Resource Officers and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officers from around the world who are part of the Forum’s peer communities, as well as Forum and McKinsey & Company experts, the Global Parity Alliance is unique in its global, cross-industry and holistic approach. The group’s learnings will support people leaders and business leaders across all functions to take ownership for and deliver DE&I change.
Speaking about signing on as a founding member, Culture Amp Co-founder and CEO Didier Elzinga said, “Our mission at Culture Amp is to create a better world of work for 100 million people. This is only going to be possible if leaders place adequate focus and resources behind their DE&I efforts. To build a Culture First organization, leaders within that organization must actively foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace. We are proud to join with the other Founding Members and to lend our expertise and our voice to this important initiative.”
In addition to developing unique new DE&I insights and tools for the Forum, the Global Parity Alliance will leverage currently available data insights, such as the Global Gender Gap Reports; practitioner expertise, including learnings from the Community of Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officers; and action frameworks such as the Partnering for Racial Justice in Business initiative.
