The Women at Pluralsight ERG (Employee Resource Group) was created specifically for women and other allies to work together to identify the often unrealized needs of females in a male-dominated environment. Their mission is to democratize women’s access to growth opportunities, so that they may have the tools to succeed as professionals and leaders, and eventually create systems that foster the development of future generations. 

Women at Pluralsight is open for all employees to join as committee members or participate in leadership roles. “As a committee chair at Women at Pluralsight, I’ve had the chance to develop programming, communications, and events that directly benefit women in tech, both inside and outside of Pluralsight,” says Ryan Sins, Communications Specialist at Pluralsight. 

Pluralsight has also taken steps to encourage female empowerment beyond the women-led initiatives including extended paid maternity/paternity leave, sponsoring of external educational programs, and working to ensure that more women not only have the opportunity to work in tech, but have the tools and support to hold leadership positions as well. 

In fact, at the end of Q1 of this year, 37.4% of Pluralsight team members identified as women. In leadership positions, women made up 39.6% (May, 2022). 

“I love being a woman at a tech company because we bring such a unique, powerful energy to our roles. We know how to get stuff done–and done well,” affirms Emily Hill, Lead Copywriter at Pluralsight. 

No company is perfect in their efforts to be more equitable in their female inclusion, but Pluralsight is striving to get there–one day and one person at a time. 

We are grateful to earn a place on the 2022 Women Tech Council’s Shatter List, and will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that we are consistently striving for female empowerment within Pluralsight and in our communities–for years to come.
