This should go without saying, but at 3%, we don’t hate men. In fact, we love them. Picking up where our friends at Refinery29 left off, we’re featuring male allies who have actively championed women in various aspects of their life.
We continue to overburden women and under value men when it comes to “roles” at home. And until we change our policies to place just as much importance on paternity as maternity and eliminate the antiquated thinking that women should bear more of the responsibility at home and caregiving… we will never achieve equality in the workplace.
3% is thrilled to announce we have teamed up with Fishbowl to advance pay equity in the advertising community by amplifying the 3% Pledge for Pay Equity, raising awareness of 3% Pledge agencies and their diversity-forward initiatives, and inviting more agencies to join their ranks.
At some point during the parade, tears will undoubtedly well up in my eyes and I will breathe in the moment, thankful I live in a time and place where people have fought for my equality before I knew I would need it.
