“Today, we are proud to sign the White House Equal Pay Pledge. At Nike, diversity is about acknowledging and valuing our differences and appreciating that everyone brings unique experiences, perspectives and ideas to the team,” the company said in a statement.
By signing the White House equal pay pledge, Nike join more than 50 other companies, including Amazon, Gap Inc. and Stella McCartney, that have also taken the pledge.
First launched in conjunction with the White House’s United States of Women summit, the equal pay pledge challenges businesses to commit to conducting an annual company-wide gender pay analysis across occupations in an effort to eliminate the gender pay gap.
“In keeping with our culture and what we stand for as an organization, we remain committed to equitable pay and rewarding performance across all roles, for all Nike team members,” the company said. “By signing the White House Equal Pay Pledge, we’re adding our voice to a movement that we hope will inspire positive change.”
