RGP signs Paradigm for Parity pledge

RGP, a global consulting firm and operating subsidiary of Resources Connection, has affirmed its commitment to cultivating women in leadership by joining the Paradigm for Parity coalition. 

The movement is comprised of companies and business leaders committed to achieving gender parity in corporate leadership by 2030.

“The cause of gender parity is in our DNA as a company. Our founder was determined to create greater opportunity for women in professional services as they struggled to balance career aspirations with the demands of family life,” says CEO Kate Duchene. “Today, RGP continues to be a place where women and working mothers enjoy boundless opportunity – supported by a nearly gender equal Board of Directors! It therefore felt very natural for us to join Paradigm for Parity® and sign the pledge, as this is the core of who we are as a firm.”

This pledge is a public commitment to continue developing a talent pool of women ready to succeed in leadership roles. At RGP, 52 per cent of leadership roles for Vice President and above are held by women. In addition to being led by a female CEO, 66 per cent of those in RVP/SVP roles are women. RGP is actively creating a collaborative and inclusive workforce and the Paradigm for Parity pledge aligns with that vision.
