The gender pay gap is one of the most discussed workplace inequities of our time, appearing everywhere from The New York Times to Harvard Business Review to Forbes. However gender-inclusive organizations don’t just begin at equal wages, inclusivity needs to be built into the core of any organization’s DNA. It’s about instilling equity into the workplace, enacting larger policies that seek to even the playing field between men and women in the office. There’s no denying that because of preconceived notions about gender and gender roles that men and women will inherently, because of lack of awareness and mindfulness, be held to different standards at work.
As a young company, we at inFeedo have always been hyperconscious about diversity and equality in the office.
Last week, I was at one of the product demo (trying to understand how Amber works better; part of our induction program) while researching on some data for an article on the wage gap in India when I started talking with a new team member in our Customer Success team. I discovered that she had done some non-profit gender equity work before joining inFeedo. When she saw the statistics in my research, she was unsurprised.
