At Energize, we genuinely believe that diversity drives alpha. We define diversity in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and thought.
Though we have been deliberate in seeking candidates and management teams with diverse backgrounds, we recognize that we can and must do better.
We are actively reassessing our approach to internal hiring, deal sourcing, fundraising and community development to prioritize diversity across every function of our organization.
As an industry, we have work to do. We realize our role in fostering an inclusive VC ecosystem, and we are committed to driving necessary change.
