About Us

Guided by a strong moral compass – with values rooted in trust, transparency, mutual respect and justice for all – we’re leading the way to fair pay.

Heyke Kirkendall-Baker

Parity Software was born from a deep personal passion for inclusion, equality, and equity. Heyke’s mother was born in East Germany and she came to the United States in pursuit of the American Dream:  opportunity, equality, prosperity, and success is achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers.  Her mother was also in West Berlin when John F. Kennedy gave his impassioned 1963 speech in defense of freedom – weeks later, he signed the Equal Pay Act barring wage disparity based on sex.
