The statistics about women and venture capital have been widely documented.
Just 8% of partners at the top venture capital firms are women.
In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th, we, the undersigned, commit to doing something about these statistics through action.
Investing in female-led companies, hiring women for decision-making positions in funds, ensuring diversity on boards, and co-investing with women on cap tables are some of the high impact ways to make a difference.
Check how many meetings you took in the first two months of 2018 with men versus women.
In celebration of IWD, we, the undersigned, commit to action and to taking an important step towards changing the ratios: we will take meetings with 8 women from outside our networks in the month of March.
Ask people you trust for recommendations of 8 new women you should meet - whether potential founders, hires, board members, executives, or others.
