Tennis Australia to further drive gender equity
AO StartUps has unveiled equidi as the third company to be showcased in the inaugural AO Startups pilot program.
Equidi uses evidence-based insights to help businesses level the ledger on gender, providing companies with real-time visibility over – pay, opportunity and representation gaps, across every part of their business – on a single dashboard.
“As a sport and business that drove equal prize money for Women and Men, we understand the important role that sport can play in driving equality across all aspects of society, so we are naturally excited to announce Equidi as an AO Startups company,” Tennis Australia Head of Innovation Dr Machar Reid said.
The launch of AO StartUps is the latest step in Tennis Australia’s innovation program which helps startup companies pilot their cutting-edge technology at the AO and other areas of Tennis Australia’s business.
The Tennis Australia People and Culture team will pilot the Equidi platform throughout 2023 to track progress and accelerate its efforts toward gender equity targets.
“The technology will be hugely beneficial to accurately compare pay gaps and representation in real-time across every part of our workforce as well as check how we are performing against industry peers,” Tennis Australia People & Culture Director Scott Glover said.
For over 15 years, Natalie Flynn, Equidi CEO and founder, has been working to empower businesses to take a lead in creating a more equitable and inclusive future.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with AO StartUps on bringing to life Equidi’s vision of shaping a more equitable and inclusive future – one we can all look forward to. It’s an honour to be working with Tennis Australia – an organisation with aligned values and a long-standing commitment to levelling up the balance on gender for good,” Flynn said.
“We’re excited to be leading the paradigm shift in how gender equity is being addressed by businesses today and look forward to helping them see the change and be the change – doing good business – even better.”
The full cohort of AO StartUps will be announced across AO 2023.
