SILICON SLOPES, Utah, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Workfront®, the leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced that the company has accepted the Women's Leadership Institute's pledge to ElevateHER. ElevateHER challenges Utah companies to commit to enhancing and elevating women's leadership within its organizations.
"While women comprise roughly half of the population, less than 24% of leaders in technology are women," said Laura Butler, SVP of People and Culture at Workfront. "Increasing gender equality in the workplace drives innovation, creates a contagious culture, and both these things positively impact our clients."
Accepting the ElevateHER challenge is one of the many ways Workfront is stepping up its commitment to gender equality. Workfront recently made changes to its maternity and paternity policy, now giving women 12 weeks of paid leave and men 3 weeks. Workfront also offers anyone in the company up to $7,000 towards adoption fees. In the past year, there have been multiple "Lean In" chapters started up where women are encouraged to uplift and empower other women in the company. Workfront is also an elite sponsor of Women in Tech, an organization that is built specifically for women working in STEM (Science Technology Engineering, and Math) positions. The focus on increasing the influence of women is bolstered by the fact that 40% of Workfront's current senior leadership team are women.
