I’ve worked at a few places and in many different environments. As a former management consultant, I was sent to a variety of locations, both domestic and abroad.
On occasion, I heard things that just made me scratch my head, outright cringe or feel pretty sad. Some were comments or jokes about females, others were about certain races. I actually left one job because of company culture. I had enough.
Reporting something to HR always seemed like a nuclear option, something that you do as a last resort. I always wished that there was a way to get guidance on tricky situations.
Based in Oakland, CA, and a graduate of Y Combinator, it is a company that feels like the right solution at the right time. Moreover, from the first moment Mrs. T. and I connected with co-founder Lisa Gelobter, we witnessed incredible vision, drive and thoughtfulness.
Lisa and co-founder Heidi Williams have created a company with the following mission: Be an independent, confidential platform to address issues of bias, discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
They do so by offering a confidential digital platform to employees, aggregating data for employers, and enabling companies to build positive cultures, retain employees and avoid expensive lawsuits.
Thank you Lisa and Heidi for letting us invest! Thank you Theresia for the introduction!
