PAR Initiative

About the PAR Initiative

Since 2003, The WICT Network PAR Initiative has measured the status of women employees in the media, entertainment and technology industries based on three main criteria:

  • Pay Equity
  • Advancement Opportunities
  • Resources for Work/Life Integration

A comprehensive advocacy program helping companies to set goals, institutionalize policies, measure progress and achieve results, the PAR Initiative showcases best practices in achieving stronger gender diversity. With a goal to improve diversity metrics for women, the PAR Initiative is supported by all of The WICT Network’s local chapters and underwritten by the Walter Kaitz Foundation.
