Our story

PARiTA is the leading software company helping organizations accelerate their diversity and inclusion progress through sophisticated analytics and tools. Our people analytics platform was one of the very first products of its kind, originating with our nonprofit sister organization, Parity.Org. After successfully incubating and beta testing our software within Parity.Org's vast network of corporate partners, we created PARiTA in 2023, to keep the platform on the leading-edge of quickly-evolving people measurement practices and standards. 

About the butterfly

The metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly is a miraculous transformation. Genetic coding triggers this change from crawling to flying, and it's a thing of beauty. At PARiTA, we use coding to take the most basic of employee data and turn it into incredible insights that transform the way organizations think about their employees, their businesses, and the decisions they make to become more profitable. It’s a thing of beauty.
