#MovingForward Movement: VCs and a Diverse, Inclusive, and Harassment-Free Workplaces

Center for Biological Diversity

HOF Capital recently joined the #MovingForward movement of VCs committed to diverse, inclusive, and harassment-free workplaces. The movement emerged at a founders dinner a few months ago when the question, “As an entrepreneur, if I experience harassment or discrimination, where do I report it and how will I be protected?”, was asked. After speaking with many VC firms, it was realized that this was a very common issue.

The #MovingForward movement puts together an open source directory that VCs can opt to join that shows their commitment to foster a diverse, inclusive, and harassment-free workplace.  

As part of #MovingForward, we made our anti-harassment/discrimination policy public. It can be viewed here: https://hof.capital/anti-harassment-non-discrimination-policy/. In addition, we appointed people at our firm to be the point of contact for entrepreneurs to ask questions and report issues.  If you have any questions regarding our policies, please reach out to Samantha Feinstein. To report an issue regarding this policy, please contact me.

You can view our commitment to #MovingForward along with other firms such as First Round, Foundry Group, Andreesen Horowitz, and Accel Partners here: https://wearemovingforward.github.io/.
