Shifting the paradigm

RTX is an advocate of Paradigm for Parity, a coalition of business leaders dedicated to addressing the corporate leadership gender gap. The coalition is made up of CEOs, senior executives, founders, board members and business academics who are committed to achieving a corporate world where women and men have equal power, status and opportunity. The ultimate goal is to achieve full gender parity by 2030, with a near-term goal of women holding at least 30 percent of senior roles.
