"Pipeline embodies the spirit of the AI Breakthrough Awards program by developing and utilizing advanced AI for social good, leading a global movement to enact real and measurable change to quantify equity in corporate human capital management," says James Johnson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. "The Pipeline team leverages data to prove that this issue is not just about the cultural and social impacts of gender inequity but is, in fact, a massive economic opportunity. Pipeline is a back-to-back AI Breakthrough Award winner, serving as a testament to their continued commitment to innovation, growth, and progress in their mission. We are thrilled to recognize Pipeline with a second consecutive AI Breakthrough Award."
Using proprietary AI technology, Pipeline is leading a global movement to enact real and measurable change to quantify equity in corporate human capital management. This has helped HR departments in customizing their efforts according to key demographics and data, allowing these teams to make faster decisions, identify risks and irregularities and leverage automation to streamline processes. Achieving gender equity is now possible in our lifetime as Pipeline gives an organization the power through data and prescriptive recommendations to consciously choose to close their corporate gender gap. According to Gartner, the leading market research firm in enterprise technologies, by 2020, more than 50% of large enterprises will include D&I enablement criteria in their selection process for HCM technologies.*
These awards further cement Pipeline's place as the leading SaaS company working to achieve gender equity in our lifetime and improve economic outcomes. Achieving Equity for All™ is a universal opportunity, as gender inequity in the workplace adversely affects men, children, families, companies, and communities.
