Women are still dramatically underrepresented in leadership: only 1 in 4 C-suite executives is a woman, and only 1 in 20 is a woman of color.
We have a persistent pipeline problem
For every woman at the director level who gets promoted to the next level, two women directors are choosing to leave their company.
For every 100 men who are promoted from entry level to manager, only 87 women are promoted, and only 82 women of color are promoted.
Women face systemic barriers
Inclusion and belonging are formed in small moments in the daily flow of work.
Did you know that micromoments matter when it comes to equity, inclusion, and diversity? The small moments in an inter-personal communication, when some people are not asked for their opinion, or are interrupted when they share their ideas.
This adds up over time, and leads women and underrepresented employees to feel like they are not welcome.
Feeling unwelcome, they may self-censor, and reduce their contributions.
Equal Time works by increasing self-awareness in meetings, and allowing teams to focus on achieving a truly inclusive team environment that gives everyone a chance to thrive.

- Identify ways to increase engagement and productivity

Speaking Time is Associated with Perceived Leadership, and Predicts Promotions
Did you know that leadership skills, as they are perceived by others, is directly correlated with speaking time? People who speak more, are rated by their group mates as more likely to be the leader.
Research supports the idea that speaking more will increase an individual's chances of gaining a promotion. Learn more and read the research here.
Diverse teams perform better
A McKinsey report shows that organizations with diverse leaders are 35% more likely to have higher financial returns, and unquestionably this is the right thing to do. But diverse teams are only successful if they are also inclusive.
Underrepresented team members you worked hard to recruit will quit if the environment they are working in is not inclusive. This can backfire, cause more disruption for the company, and end up costing time, energy and effort. Inclusion needs to be a first level priority for retaining and effectively engaging all employees.
Psychological Safety is a Key Component
The #1 most important factor Google found to predict team performance was psychological safety (Google's Aristotle). This refers to the feeling that it's safe to be oneself, ask questions, and share ideas.
Teams are highest performing when everyone has approximately equal time to speak, and each person speaks in short turns. (Alex "Sandy" Pentland, MIT)
"I've found that men are surprised when you show them [data] of themselves interrupting or talking over other people, especially women, they're just not aware until you bring it to their attention. And once you do, they recognize it and want to get better." (Carnegie Mellon, Joanna Wolfe)
"This was the tool I was waiting for. It has been helpful for both internal and external meetings and has really shed light on the dynamics of these conversations. Very useful!"
"This extension helps me to track which voices take up a little too much "air time" during meetings with my staff. It helps build inclusivity, and it allows me to track who does not speak up as much during Google Meetings."
"Wow! What a useful app. I always thought I was making space for my female colleagues, and this app was very enlightening in showing me that I could do more. I expect our productivity and collaboration will certainly increase!"
