Girl Scouts launched the Fair Play, Equal Pay® Gender Parity Initiative to engage organizations to take action now to help build a more equitable future for women and girls. We believe gender should not be a barrier to equal opportunities for leadership and success.
The Gender Parity Initiative is intended to be a powerful catalyst towards parity in the workplace. Girl Scouts has set a bold goal for organizations to ensure diverse women hold 30% of leadership roles and earn equal pay for equal work by 2030.
Step 1: Pledge to increase gender parity within your organization by ensuring 30% of leadership positions are held by diverse female talent by the year 2030.
Step 2: Complete an assessment of your organization’s gender parity status.
Step 3: Advance your organization’s gender parity status using expert-informed resources available through the initiative.
Step 4: Achieve Girl Scouts’ gender parity certification and proudly promote your organization’s success prominently displaying your certification seal.
“We pledge to advance gender parity within the decision making sector of our workplace by proactively executing a quantifiable, results-oriented talent plan designed to achieve industry-leading female representation and like pay for like work. We will embrace the goal to foster a gender-friendly workplace environment of diverse talent that, by the year 2030, includes female leaders in at least 30% of our corporate leadership roles.”
Girl Scouts is working with Women in Governance (WiG), an expert in gender parity to evaluate and support organizations as they make meaningful progress towards parity. For a nominal fee, WiG will assess and certify organizations based on a scaled 4-star system at each level of certification. As each level is achieved, organizations will receive a Girl Scouts’ Gender Parity Certification Seal.
This innovative certification evaluates the commitment of an organization’s leadership to parity. It assesses the commitment to enabling talent and representative leadership at all levels of their organization to achieving career advancement, creating a pipeline of female talent.
