Davinci Virtual Office Solutions Takes the ParityPledgeTM as Part of Its Commitment to Improving the Pathway for Women in Leadership
Davinci Virtual Office Solutions, the leading provider of global business addresses, on-demand workspace offerings and live receptionist services, today announced it has taken the ParityPledge, building on its commitment to improving the pathway for women in leadership positions. The ParityPledge simply 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. No quotas. No deadlines. 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.

“Davinci is extremely proud to be associated with Parity.org. Our company has been built on diversity, open culture and equal opportunity. We embrace those fundamental values every single day and have made them a huge part of our culture and commitment,” said Martin Senn, CEO of Davinci Virtual Office Solutions.
“Davinci’s workforce is comprised of over 90 percent incredibly talented female professionals – taking the ParityPledge was a no-brainer for us,” Senn added.
“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 DavinciVirtual.com 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.”

The ParityPledge was inspired by the NFL’s Rooney Rule, a straightforward solution that improved diversity at leadership levels of NFL teams by requiring teams to include more diverse candidates in the interview process. In just three years, the Rooney Rule helped increase representation of African Americans in team leadership positions from 6 percent to 22 percent. ParityPledge is a trademark of Parity.org.
