VEP Diversity Statement

Our objective at Venture Executive Partners is to provide the power of insight to every important professional choice. A dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion is at the heart of what we do and who we are since our business is founded on the power of first-hand expertise and a diversity of opinions. Our formal policies and Venture Executive Partners principles, which combine great performance with compassion and guide how we treat our clients, experts, teammates, and communities, reflect this approach.

Our commitment:

The following is our promise: Venture Executive Partners, like many other businesses, examines its DE&I performance on a regular basis to see where we have come and how far we still have to go. Our Chief Diversity Officer spearheads these efforts. We redoubled our efforts in 2020 and committed to a detailed action plan. This has included, among other things, attempting to field diverse slates of candidates for open roles; training and education based on Venture Executive Partners’ unique expert population; and a commitment to our global Diversity Networks, which foster a diverse workplace through recruiting and outreach efforts, development, and mentoring opportunities, and providing a safe space for Venture Executive Partners employees. Venture Executive Partners can share their stories and provide each other assistance. We have raised our donations and pro bono support for racial justice organisations as a result of our Social Impact efforts.

No tolerance policy on discrimination:

Venture Executive Partners has long had a zero-tolerance policy for harassment and discrimination, which includes a restriction on retaliation. All staff are required to attend annual mandated trainings, and we communicate widely to ensure that employees are aware of how to report any issues (including employee access to an anonymous whistle-blower hotline). A work atmosphere that promotes integrity and respect benefits us all.

We are an equal opportunity employer: 

Venture Executive Partners hires people purely on their merit and qualifications that are directly related to their professional competency. Venture Executive Partners does not discriminate against employees or applicants based on including without limits, race, creed, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, national origin, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, marital status, pregnancy or related condition, or any other legal ground.

Suppliers and vendors:

Venture Executive Partners is committed to working with a wide range of suppliers and encouraging their participation. We are initiating a supplier diversity project that will focus on discovering diverse suppliers within our present network, boosting their use, and forming partnerships with them.

Our experts:

Despite the unfortunate truth that minority groups have traditionally been underrepresented in some sectors of expertise, we are also committed to increasing the number of diverse specialists in our network of experts. This is a systemic issue that we believe should be addressed by all sectors. We choose experts for projects based on their responses to extensive inquiries about their experience, knowledge, skills, and talents, as well as information gathered from previous encounters with Venture Executive Partners, but we do not consider ethnicity, gender, or other factors. This represents our philosophy that exact matches to the top professionals should be made depending on what our clients require. Not on any other feature, but on what our experts say that they know and can contribute.

Our promise:

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion has only deepened in this period when so many are coming together to press for solutions. In this time when so many people are banding together to demand solutions to long-standing imbalances, our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion has only become stronger. Our differences, we believe, make us smarter. We are establishing a firm where every employee has the opportunity to grow, guided by our purpose and Venture Executive Partners principles, and we are committed to working with our clients, experts, and suppliers to continue to make progress on these issues.
