Plus a number of fantastic angel investors…
"Equalicert is tackling a problem that every business, no matter the size, is looking to solve. And not just for optics to show the world they value DIBE—companies finally realize that building and nurturing a diverse, inclusive, and equitable team will help them be better at what they do. I'm fortunate enough to work at an incredible company that puts a ton of resources into DIBE, and even with world-class people developing on our efforts, the tools to make it work are still lacking. Equalicert can change this. I worked with Rachel early on in our careers, and I'm confident she can lead with empathy and grow a successful team and business."
"I invested in Equalicert for two reasons. I’ve worked with the founder Rachel in the past and have seen her ability to execute and bring products to market first hand. Additionally, the mission of the company aligns with my values. I know this space has a long way to go with almost no existing software tooling to help accelerate the transition to a more inclusive and diverse workplace. The fact that we are so far behind on creating inclusive and diverse workplaces is a societal failing, but it provides an opportunity for Equalicert to make a huge positive impact in the space."
"I invested in Equalicert because I believe in the power of diverse teams. Equalicert has an impressive and very diverse founding team themselves and enables their customers to reach that same goal. Most companies still struggle with diversity and equality, but have now realized the need for change if they want to attract the best talent in an increasingly tight labor market. The first step towards change is awareness and Equalicert allows users and customers to approach diversity and equality with data and driven by software. That excited me both as a financial investor and as a human being."
"A commitment to more inclusive and diverse working cultures and environments has both professionally and personally been an important factor when making investment decisions and supporting companies on their growth journey. From what has historically been a very emotional discussion for management teams, Equalicert offers companies and their teams tools to have a quantifiable and content-driven discussion around setting concrete measures and initiatives to improve the status quo and comply with leading D&I findings and standards. Rachel and her team have done a great job in creating a solution which addresses the gaps in creating an overarching D&I strategy for its clients."
