A Silicon Valley Movement
The 25×25 Pledge challenges Silicon Valley and Bay Area companies to increase their diversity in business leadership by setting a goal of filling 25% of executive positions with hires from underrepresented groups by 2025 or pledging that the number of underrepresented individuals in leadership roles will increase by at least 25% by 2025.
Companies that take the 25×25 pledge commit to the following actions:
The 25x25 Pledge was developed by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group to catalyze action in Silicon Valley and beyond. We are partnering with the Bay Area Council (BAC) in these efforts. 25x25 sets a comprehensive blueprint for participating companies to diversify leadership as a business imperative while also operationalizing cultural change. 25x25 is a collective action to amplify the work of our individual companies committed to making significant strides with diversity goals.
Underrepresented leadership will be defined by the participating company in line with its organizational structure to reflect individuals with authority to make key financial decisions and/or strategic decisions.
Yes. We encourage these companies to increase the current number of individuals from underrepresented groups in leadership by at least 25% by 2025.
Companies that take the 25x25 Pledge will determine the diversity information and initiatives they want to publicly share.
For questions related to participating companies, please contact our VP of Racial Justice & Equity, Angelica Cortez, [email protected].
