Report Shows GoDaddy Pays Men and Women at Parity for Fifth Consecutive Year
GoDaddy Inc., the company that empowers everyday entrepreneurs, published its annual diversity and salary parity data. The data shows that GoDaddy pays men and women in similar jobs at parity across the company, marking the fifth consecutive year the company has achieved this goal.

“GoDaddy is proud of the progress we’ve made in creating a more inclusive and diverse workplace, and of the rigorous programs we’ve put in place to ensure employees are paid and treated fairly,” said Chief People Officer Monica Bailey. “The numbers also show that our efforts to minimize unconscious bias across the organization, specifically in the areas of performance reviews and career advancement, continue to generate positive results. GoDaddy remains steadfast in our commitment to create a workforce that is as diverse as the customers we serve and we believe we’re on the right path.”
