Parity Software was born from a deep personal passion for inclusion and equality. Cofounder Heyke Kirkendall-Baker’s mother escaped from communist Germany and was in West Berlin when John F. Kennedy gave his impassioned 1963 speech in defense of freedom – just weeks after he signed the Equal Pay Act barring wage disparity based on sex.
