Bullhorn Joins Effort to Support Workplace Equality for Women
BOSTON, Mass, February 3, 2015 – Bullhorn®, the fast-growing provider of cloud-based customer relationship management software for the staffing, recruiting, and services industries, today announced it has joined the Corporate Challenge, a groundbreaking initiative by Bentley University’s Center for Women and Business, to increase workplace gender equality and more effectively harness the talents of female employees. The Corporate Challenge, among the first of its kind in the nation, seeks to assess gender diversity in the workplace, recruit women to senior positions, and close wage gaps.
The Corporate Challenge is an extension of the Women in the Workplace Initiative, an effort by former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick to advance women across the commonwealth in both the public and private sectors. Massachusetts Gov. Charles Baker has given his support to the Corporate Challenge and the effort continues to grow, with more than 100 companies now having joined. Participating companies commit to define their gender-inclusiveness goals, develop strategies to meet those goals, and track their progress.
“Bullhorn is excited to join the Corporate Challenge and to participate in this effort to build a more diverse, vibrant, and resilient workforce. We’re actively working to diversify our senior executive suite, and are committed to making major strides this year and beyond,” said Bullhorn CEO Art Papas. “As our company has matured, we recognize that female participation, and diversity in general, is incredibly valuable from a business perspective. A workforce rich with different cultures and perspectives is strong, and we look forward to taking part in this movement in Boston and around the world.”
Bullhorn’s goals toward a more equitable working environment include increasing the number of women in leadership positions and ultimately improving the percentage of women throughout the company.
“We are proud to partner with forward-thinking Massachusetts organizations that understand that workplace gender balance is critical to the economic success of Massachusetts,” said Betsy Myers, founding director of Bentley University’s Center for Women and Business. “By sharing best practices and their own experiences, organizations participating in the Corporate Challenge are taking real steps to advance women in the workplace and improve their own bottom line.”
