At Pipeline’s April 10 Equity for All™ event, Colorado Lieutenant Governor, Donna Lynne, joined a group of special guests to announce the proclamation of April 10th as Equity for All™ Day in Colorado, and the v.3 release of our software.

Check out our video recap of the Equity for All event!

Pipeline was launched officially on Equal Pay Day— April 4th, 2017. Equal Pay Day marks how far into the year women must work to be paid what their male peers earned in December of the year prior. In the year since our founding, we’ve seen discussions on topics surrounding diversity and inclusion, gender equity, and gender equality, increase in momentum and intensity.

These conversations are important if we wish to bend the arc of history toward inclusion and achieve gender equity in this lifetime. It’s time for us all— women and men, in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, to make a public commitment to achieve gender parity.

To truly bend the arc of history toward inclusion, we must turn our conversations into action.

To celebrate our one year anniversary, Pipeline hosted a remarkable group of guest speakers and attendees for our first Equity for All event, held to correspond with Equal Pay Day 2018.

Of particular significance to April 10, 2018—and our event—is something now unique to Colorado. Governor John W. Hickenlooper has proclaimed April 10th in the state of Colorado, Equity for All™ Day, in honor of the work Pipeline has done to close the gender equity gap. This is an achievement not only for Pipeline, but also for women and men in the state of Colorado and nationwide. It recognizes that fundamentally gender equity is about Equity for All™.

Make gender equity a quantifiable, data-driven, economic opportunity rather than a confusing and controversial social issue.

We were honored to have the Lieutenant Governor of Colorado, Donna Lynne, join us to present Pipeline founder and CEO, Katica Roy, and Pipeline CTO, Stefan Ramsbott, with the Governor’s Proclamation. It’s difficult to find the perfect combination of words to describe the importance of this proclamation—a hush fell over the room as all in attendance felt the magnitude of the moment.

Former Denver Bronco and Super Bowl 50 champion, Ryan Harris took the stage following Donna Lynne’s moving presentation. His passion, eloquence, and public commitment to achieve gender equity, demonstrate the willingness of men to join women in this important conversation.

“We are all involved in gender equity one way or another. I am Ryan Harris, I can create gender equity—I can be a champion for more than myself.”

Steph Bruno, Chair of the Board of Trustees of The Women’s Foundation of Colorado joined Pattie Money, Chief People Officer of SendGrid, on stage for a poignant and inspiring fireside chat. Pattie discussed what led SendGrid to make a commitment to gender equity within the organization, and how tech companies need to make diversity, inclusion, and equality a top-level business priority. SendGrid has implemented the Pipeline platform to provide the data-driven insights they need to ensure an environment where there is true equity for all across the company. This solidifies the position of SendGrid as a tech industry-leader.

“Diversity is a business necessity—and equality is a business necessity.”—Pattie Money, Chief People Officer, SendGrid

Our event closed with the announcement of v.3 of the Pipeline platform, including a brief demo by Pipeline CTO, Stefan Ramsbott, and an announcement by Pipeline CEO, Katica Roy, who explained that today, not only can we tell every company their time to gender parity, with Pipeline, we have a data-driven software platform to get them there.

“Today, not only can we tell every company their time to gender parity, we can get them to gender parity.”—Katica Roy, CEO, Pipeline

Together, we can achieve gender equity in this lifetime and seize this massive economic opportunity.
