Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK), a leading e-commerce home
furnishings retailer, has been named to the 2021 Parity.org Best
Companies for Women to Advance List for the second year in a row.
This list recognizes organizations that have implemented a mix of
exemplary benefits, policies, and programs that ensure women have
significant opportunities to advance their careers.
Companies on the list were rated in areas of equality in hiring
and promotion practices, inclusion, representation of women in
leadership, and enablers, such as benefits and other policies, that
help companies achieve equitable outcomes.
“It is great to be included in Parity.org’s Best Companies for

Overstock offers a multitude of benefits and programs aimed at
supporting women in the workforce, including flexible scheduling
options, female-focused resource groups (Overstock Women’s Network
and Women in Tech), extended parental leave, a formal mentorship
program, its Caregiver Travel policy which covers the cost of one
caregiver and one child under the age of two to travel with
employees required to travel for work, as well as onsite amenities
including a health clinic, fitness center, and daycare. Overstock
took the ParityPledge in 2017, promising to interview at least one
qualified female candidate for every open executive position, vice
president and above, to help improve pathways for female leadership
opportunities. Overstock’s culture naturally aligns with Parity’s
pledge as the company’s leadership team is comprised of numerous
female executives including the Chief Financial Officer, Chief
Marketing Officer, Chief Customer Officer, and Chief People
Officer, along with other notable vice president, director, and
board level positions.
“After a year that has erased all the gains women have made in
the past several decades, there are still companies that are making
progress to support women’s advancement at work--all the more
reason to celebrate their successes,” said Cathrin Stickney,
Parity.org founder and CEO. “The companies that are on the 2021
list of Best Companies for Women to Advance are shining examples of
