This article is part of InHerSight's Partners in Diversity series. Discover companies partnering with InHerSight to better support women in the workplace.

In 2024, advocating for gender equality in the workplace isn't merely about fulfilling quotas or checking boxes; it's about fostering a culture of inclusivity, innovation, and opportunity. And for leaders, it’s about becoming a voice for change and an ambassador for company initiatives that help everyone have better experiences at work. 

For our final Women’s History Month installment, we asked leaders at partner companies to discuss the work their organizations are doing to meet gender equality goals. Discover below how leaders say companies are leading the charge, or return to our coverage of company benefits, company cultures, and company partnerships that are driving change. 

Company: VTS 

What they do: VTS is the commercial real estate industry’s only technology company that unifies owners, operators, brokers, and tenants in a single platform to capitalize on opportunities revealed in every square foot of their properties. 

When has your organization gotten it right in terms of gender equality?

“VTS keeps equality at the forefront of everything that we do. That shows up in our parental leave policy that is not gender specific, which encourages caregivers to take the same amount of leave across the business. This makes it less isolating for women who typically take off more time after childbirth. VTS performs pay equity reviews to ensure that employees are being compensated fairly regardless of their gender. When it comes to our hiring process, we incorporate the Rooney Rule to ensure that we’re interviewing a diverse set of candidates for all of our roles. VTS also has a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Working Group that plans programming for our employees and stays at the forefront of inclusion and equality in the workplace. Additionally, we have employee resource groups that support our team by creating community among our employees with shared characteristics and interests.” —Jaclyn Pomerantz, VP, People Operations

Company: Ping Identity

What they do: Ping Identity provides cloud-based identity management software for companies and government organizations.

What will your organization look like if your gender equality goals are met?

“At Ping, we are always striving to attract, support, and promote the best talent, regardless of how an individual identifies themself. We also believe that the highest performing teams are those that bring diverse perspectives to the table. Our goals are met when employees feel they can bring their best authentic selves to the workplace and feel supported.” —Shalini Sharma, Chief Legal Officer

Company: Taulia

What they do: Taulia delivers working capital solutions that make it easy for businesses to free up cash, accelerate payments, and improve supply chain health.

When has your organization gotten it right in terms of gender equality?

“Our organization has successfully prioritized gender equality by implementing a range of thoughtful initiatives. Notably, we have excelled in fostering inclusivity within our hiring processes. The establishment of women-inclusive hiring committees, the commitment to interviewing women for all positions, and the use of gender-neutral language in job descriptions are key milestones that showcase our dedication to creating a level playing field. Additionally, the creation of LIFT Women, a supportive platform for addressing women's issues, seeking guidance from fellow women, and providing opportunities for leadership growth, reflects our commitment to empowering and advancing women within the company. These initiatives collectively demonstrate our proactive efforts in creating an environment where gender equality is not just a goal but a tangible reality.” —Darcy Douglas, Vice President of Global Program Management

Company: Lazer Logistics

What they do: Lazer Logistics is a logistics powerhouse that provides yard spotting, yard shuttle, and trailer services. They’re built on a foundation of shared values: diversity, drive, and above all else, family. 

What will your organization look like if your gender equality goals are met?

“If Lazer Logistics’s equality goals are fully realized, it will greatly impact our core processes and initiatives surrounding representation and leadership all the way to the frontline management, opportunities and pay, and strengthening our core values through an inclusive culture. Lazer Logistics is fully committed to take proactive steps toward data collection and analysis and process improvements surrounding recruiting and talent mobility, total rewards, learning and development, and engagement to ensure that all efforts are in-sync with our overall diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. We also keep abreast with industry and local programs that are aligned with our diversity, equity, and inclusion goals to ensure that our initiatives are relevant to the community where our employees work. We have a long way to go in fully realizing diversity, equity, and inclusion goals but having been able to take great and significant steps toward its fulfillment makes a huge difference.” —Candice Mirasol, Chief People Officer

Company: InfoTrust

What they do: InfoTrust is a privacy-centric digital analytics solutions company that empowers marketers to make confident, data-driven decisions. Working with many of the world’s best-known brands, they partner with enterprise organizations in the CPG, retail, media, health, and finance spaces.

What will your organization look like if your gender equality goals are met?

“In today’s dynamic world, fully embracing and promoting gender equality is critical to sustainable growth and an inclusive workplace for all. One specific area of focus is policies and practices that support work-life harmony. This includes flexible working arrangements, comprehensive parental leave, and support for caregiving responsibilities. By supporting the whole person, we empower all employees to succeed professionally without sacrificing their personal commitments and wellbeing at all levels in the organization. This commitment to continuous improvement is a demonstration of our ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will continue to challenge ourselves, reassess our policies, and engage with our employees to foster an inclusive work environment for all. Fully realizing our gender equality goals is essential to our success and fostering an environment where every individual can thrive, contribute, and lead without barriers.” —Polina Panich, Chief People Officer
