​About the PAR Initiative

Since 2003, the WICT PAR Initiative has measured the status of women employees in the cable industry based on three main criteria: 

  • Pay Equity
  • Advancement Opportunities
  • Resources for Work/Life Integration

A comprehensive advocacy program helping companies to set goals, institutionalize policies, measure progress and achieve results, the PAR Initiative showcases best practices in achieving stronger gender diversity. With a goal to improve diversity metrics for women, the PAR Initiative is supported by all of WICT's local chapters and underwritten by the Walter Kaitz Foundation.
