Industry commitment to gender, ethnic, and skill diversity is at an all time high but firms are struggling to put this commitment into practice. Parity Partners works with private-market investment and financial services companies to help them realize their diversity goals through providing advice, educational programs, and executive search services.
McKinsey's research shows that gender-diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform their peers and ethnically-diverse companies are 35% more likely to do the same.
Catalyst research shows that companies with more women on the board statistically outperform their peers over a long period of time.
VC firms with female partners are more likely to invest in companies that have a woman on the executive team. They are three times more likely to invest in a company with a woman CEO.
