True Ventures’ Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
Our goal is to empower the world’s most talented entrepreneurs. Our experiences and research show that the diversity, quality and cohesiveness of a team are critical to the success of a company.
While some human bias is natural, we believe it’s our responsibility to recognize it, examine its source and adjust our behaviors accordingly to create a fair, safe space for Founders and their teams.
True is deeply committed to increasing diversity and inclusion in the startup and venture capital ecosystem. While we are having important conversations about how to accelerate change, we believe that real change requires a commitment to steadfast action.
We commit to seeing differences as strengths, not obstacles.
We commit to hiring people across our portfolio based on their ability to contribute, not their gender, race, sexual orientation and/or background.
We commit to widening our talent and funding pools to those beyond our immediate circles, so we can foster an environment that’s as culturally inclusive as it is rich with groundbreaking ideas.
We commit to fostering safe, respectful and professional environments where people can do their best work (free of harassment of any sort).
We commit to building diverse boards of directors and advisory boards.
We commit to tracking and examining data that helps us ensure our behavior matches our values.
We aspire to invest in people and teams that share, embody and promote these values.
