Isabelle and Marie Louise founded the youth-led organization #Hunspanderer in Norway 2015. #HunSpanderer has had two successful campaigns addressing unconscious bias and gender stereotypes reaching millions of people. Following the campaigns they saw a significant call for action and solutions on how to improve diversity in the workplace.
That lead them to found Equality Check.
What is Equality Check?
Equality Check is a platform where employees can leave anonymous reviews about equal opportunity, workplace culture, work/life balance, the management's commitment to diversity and more. Our belief is that we can create a better workplace for everyone through transparency and accountability. Our platform is always anonymous.
Will you have equal opportunities and the ability to advance and grow, regardless of your gender, ethnicity, sexuality or age at your next employer?
By using Equality Check you are helping other people avoid pitfalls and showcase the workplaces that are truly wonderful places to work.
Employers benefit from becoming aware of how their employees feel about their culture, and those who score well will be rewarded by having a platform to attract the best talent from a diverse candidate pool. For employers who want to improve, we have developed tools to support them. Our unique approach combines qualitative and quantitative data for workplaces to go from insight to action.
Our mission is to catalyze equal opportunities for everyone through transparency and accountability.

Why we do it
Diversity and gender equality has been on the agenda for many years. Despite efforts, we are still not seeing the change we long to see. In 2020, the WEF Gender Gap report estimated that with the current rate of progress, it will take 99.5 years to close the global gender gap. In other words;
Equality will not be solved anytime soon unless we speed up the process.
Many employees with minority backgrounds experience the direct consequence of unconscious bias, microaggression and discrimination. Studies show that employees are reluctant to share bad conduct and culture with their managers because they are afraid of negative reactions or reprimands. In 2017, 19 million people tweeted #MeToo, proving that a large group of women still experience sexual harassment at work.
This falls back to corporate culture. However, the crucial inside information on the level of unconscious and conscious discrimination is not accessible for employees before they start working at a workplace.
The inside information from employees describing the level of unconscious bias, quality of culture and equal opportunity is crucial for workplaces to be able to change the workplace culture into an including environment providing equal opportunities for all employees.
