      CEO, Ralph Lauren


      Nasdaq took the ParityPledge® in 2017 and since then we have fulfilled that pledge by addressing all open roles VP and higher.

      Since then, in just two and a half years, 50% of all new executive hires have been women. We are very proud of our progress.



      Supriya Jha
      SVP Diversity & Inclusion, Nasdaq


      The ParityPledge® was a good push for us. It created heightened focus for gender diversity across the entire company.

      We started at the top, and it was intentional, believing that if you can't see it, you can't be it.
