WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbon Black (NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in next generation endpoint security, today announced it has taken the ParityPledge, building on its commitment to improving the pathway for women in leadership positions.
The ParityPledge asks that companies commit to interviewing at least one qualified woman candidate for every open position, vice president and above, including the C-suite and board. The ParityPledge is an initiative of Parity.org, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on bringing gender equality to the highest levels of business.
“At Carbon Black, we strive for leadership and diversity at all levels,” said Amy Robinson, Carbon Black’s Chief People Officer. “In addition to upholding the ParityPledge to ensure a strong focus on diversifying our candidate pool for leadership positions, we’re also investing in initiatives such as: Grace Hopper, Mass Conference for Women, The Cigar Room (our internal women’s empowerment group), She Geeks Out, and Career Contessa to find other ways to network with women and attract them to and grow them within our organization.”
“Parity.org was founded to correct the stark reality of gender imbalance at the very top of companies today,” said Cathrin Stickney, Parity.org founder and CEO. “While women represent 51 percent of the population, barely 20 percent of S&P500 corporate executive teams and boards are represented by women. We are thankful for organizations like Carbon Black that are willing to become a role model for change. We believe their public commitment and example will help us realize exponential progress toward reaching parity at the top.”
