Today is International Women’s Day, a day where we celebrate women around the world. This years International Women’s Day theme is “Better the balance, better the world,” and takes an even greater meaning for Profitect.
We are proud to share that Profitect has reached a workforce comprising 50 percent women, which is a significant achievement for any organization, but even more so for those of us in the technology sector. To top this impressive statistic, our executive management team has also achieved parity among men and women as well, with female executives leading Customer Success, Industry Solutions, Human Resources, Finance, and Marketing. This is no small task. According to an article in Recode, more than half of all startups have entirely male executive teams, and more than 70 percent of start-ups have no women at all on their Boards of Directors. We’re proud to say that both our Advisory Board and Board of Directors also boast multiple strong executive female leaders.
At Profitect we believe strongly that diversity leads to innovation. Our award-winning prescriptive analytics solution is a testament to the many voices and backgrounds we have contributing to its development. Another stat to boast about: our Research and Development team is more than 40% percent female with women leading the Engineering and Product Management teams. Our software sales team, also a role traditionally male dominated in technology, is also 50 percent female; and our entire Finance team is exclusively female. Profitect is aggressively hiring right now to keep up with market demand and company growth. While we of course welcome anyone with the right skill sets to apply, it is truly inspiring to see women so well represented in all departments!
I hope you’ll join me in recognizing all the smart, dedicated, and successful women here at Profitect and elsewhere, all working and fighting to achieve a gender-balanced working world.
