We are the first employer certification and leadership program for gender equity in the U.S. workplace. 


Queen City Certified recognizes, promotes, and supports organizations that are committed to fostering an environment where people of all genders can thrive regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation. Our research-based approach is founded on the understanding that diversity, inclusion, and transparency are good for business.

  • Recruitment and interviewing practices

  • Work-life support

  • Training, mentorship, and professional development

  • Equal pay for equal or comparable work
