Our Story

Equal Time began in 2021, when Rachel, a tech executive, realized how hard it was for her team members to gain confidence, speak up, and gain visibility for their work.

There was a persistent problem facing many women she interacted with and that was that they didn’t feel safe to speak up and share their perspective. This was holding them back from earning promotions and getting the leadership experience they wanted.

Rachel met Kim, another tech executive, and together they decided to apply their skills to helping underrepresented employees gain an equal chance to succeed at work. They launched the fist Google Meet app in January of 2022, and the Zoom app in August of 2022.
