Power of Parity Awards
The Parity Awards celebrate the individuals, companies, and organizations who are building systemic change through hard work, innovation, and inclusion.
At Zero Gap we observed a distinct imbalance in the news:
an excess of stories highlighting the persistent inequalities in our society and absence of attention.
Change-makers on the front lines advocating and implementing positive action to close the gap were not being heard. And we decided to balance the narrative.
These awards honor people who have shone a spotlight on underrepresented causes and issues, developed radical technology that overcomes institutionalized workplace, and champion change on the ground.
We are proud to recognize and celebrate these individuals and companies who break boundaries and stigmas. Our awards are released on a quarterly and in fall during our annual awards celebration.
QUARTERLY SPOTLIGHT AWARD HONOREE
“I believe that women and girls can do - and be - anything they want. But I also know that meaningful cultural change can't and won't happen when only half of the population works toward that change. Men need to act, to set examples, and be role models for youth, too.”
