Gender Equity Wiki

The Gender Equity Wiki is an online resource designed to serve as America’s central repository for workplace gender equity information and resources. It combines features of Wikipedia and Yelp to include:
 High-quality articles, services, and other resources women need to make good decisions about where, when, and how to work
 Personal accounts that allow users to save their searches, and review and contribute suggested resources for others
 Targeted education, information about resources, and mentorship/internship avenues for employers to implement in their companies

The impact of the Gender Equity Wiki lies in its ability to:
1) Address and serve the needs of enough diverse working populations to increase gender equity commitment at every socioeconomic level and cultural background
2) Increase all people’s understanding of workplace discrimination so women will be better equipped to navigate their environments, men can better contribute to solutions, and community and organizational leaders will recognize the economic and social consequences of failing to achieve gender equity
3) Help companies lay the groundwork for formal gender equity initiatives and normalize the trend in corporate culture
4) Generate and maintain high, ongoing levels of both community and corporate awareness and engagement to fuel the momentum that the gender equity movement needs to truly become embedded in our society

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Adults

The Kim Center is accelerating the achievement of equal status for all genders in the workplace using LEAPS™. Our signature initiative comprises three tools: 1) comprehensive Assessment reveals cultural and logistical equity barriers for employees at multiple intersections of marginalization, including race/ethnicity; 2) customizable Playbook coordinate timelines and efforts by all stakeholders; 3) national Accreditation holds all companies accountable to the same standards. Combined, these tools give employers the data, structure and support they have been lacking to make rapid cultural transformation. We are working with San Diego County, cities, and employers to scale LEAPS™ to the regional level to prove that a community can make measurable progress toward gender equity when organized and united.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Adults
Ethnic and racial groups
Caregivers
LGBTQ people

As a declaration of public unity, the Kim Center spearheaded Workplace Gender Equity Day so civic leaders can rally their communities around the need for change. Our goal is to have every city in the United States make this historic proclamation.

Thanks to collaborative efforts with the San Diego County Women’s Commission and other partners, eleven entities have given voice to their constituencies, including the State of California, eight San Diego cities, and the San Diego Democratic Party.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Employing organizations and agencies from multiple sectors and industries cooperate locally and connect nationally to share resources that promote workplace gender equity. They pledge to CARE about workplace gender equity, SHARE resources to support the mission, and DARE to make change.

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
