In her talk to the Denver Business Journal’s 2017 Outstanding Women in Business finalists, Katica Roy was expert and describing both quantitative and qualitative factors that conspire to create a lack of pay equity amongst the sexes in today’s workplace. Katica was smart, direct, and engaging. The Outstanding Women came away from her talk enlightened and motivated to do their part to change the tide. It was inspiring to witness.

President & Publisher, Denver Business Journal

As a female executive, the data compiled by Pipeline on the global gender equity gap, in and of itself, is compelling and a catalyst for immediate change. When you layer on the economics and opportunity cost (additional GDP, spending power and ROI) we are leaving on the table, it becomes a no brainer. We need to act; each of us individually to make a collective difference. Given her background as a human resource executive and data scientist, Pipeline’s founder, Katica Roy is uniquely positioned to lead the company to success in resolving the gender equity gap and capitalizing on this underutilized capacity.
