Striving to make better things and to make things better, for everyone.

We partner with innovative companies to build diverse teams, equitable systems, inclusive products, and company cultures where people belong.

About Us

Since 2014, we've supported companies like yours to embed diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) into everything you do.

Driven by data, our evidence-based research approach helps you build diverse teams, equitable systems, inclusive products, and company cultures where people belong.

Why fe•mi•nuity?

Our name was inspired by 'feminism' and 'ingenuity.' ‘Ingenuity’ is defined as something clever or inventive, and for us, 'feminism' refers to an equity-based movement that stands to benefit everyone. We believe that the combination of the two can help us all build better things and while also making things better, for everyone.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)

For us, diversity isn’t a numbers game, it’s a core value. Equity isn’t a one-off initiative, it’s an intentional design choice. And inclusion isn’t a fleeting emotion, it’s a culture.

In our experience working with startups through to Fortune 500 companies, we have learned that an intentional focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion is critical as you grow and scale.

We help you to recognize bias and create transformative change in your company's culture and bottom line.

The Tech for All: Breaking Barriers in Toronto's Innovation Community report is the first of its kind, exploring diversity, inclusion and belonging (DIBs) in Toronto’s tech sector. We're proud that the DIBs Canadian Tech Survey that we developed with our partners at Fortay was used to collect the quantitative data. Check out the report here.

Our Co-Founder and CEO is pleased to have supported the incredible team at Women in Tech World as an Editorial Advisor on "Canada's Gender Equity Roadmap: A Study of Women in Tech."

Canada is home to a large and growing tech workforce but as the report, "Who are Canada's Tech Workers?" reveals, there are inequities in terms of pay and participation that need to be addressed. We were pleased to contribute to the data set used in this report, and for our CEO to advise on the research process. We feel strongly that Canada has a significant opportunity to shape an equitable tech sector that reflects and benefits all Canadians. The report can be accessed here.
