Diversity Spotlight is a feature on Crunchbase that indicates if there is diversity in an organization’s leadership team. For startups, this includes Founders and CEO's. For investment firms, this includes partners with check-writing abilities (General Partner, Managing Partner).
Leadership from underrepresented backgrounds who want to raise visibility for their companies will be able add their data to Crunchbase for free and indicate which diversity spotlight tags are relevant.
While we are starting with US-based race/ethnicity & gender data, we believe we can expand applications of Diversity Spotlight to support additional diverse groups and global regions.
Building Diversity Spotlight has been a sprint to the finish line and we recognize there will be room for improvement. We ask for your understanding as we continue to evolve the feature, and take action in support of our mission to democratize access to opportunity.
Keep in mind, this feature is free to view and does not require a Crunchbase Pro subscription to edit the data.
That said, we would love to hear any suggestions you may have for consideration! If you have any suggestions or feedback on this new feature, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com.
