GEAR Membership Program

Gender Equity Advancement Roundtable (GEAR) is a space for businesses, nonprofits, schools, and advocates to learn about best practices and policies for supporting women in the workplace. For a one-time annual fee, GEAR members are invited to four learning sessions each year where they hear from equity experts, access resources and tools, and network with other employers who are working to implement equity and inclusion into their everyday operations.
