PledgeLA seeks to redefine what it means to participate in the tech industry. We envision a tech industry that supports all corners of the city, employs its residents equitably, and gives back by helping to solve the city’s most pressing issues.
What is the PledgeLA organization going to do?
What are the benefits to membership?
Additionally, PledgeLA members receive tailored support to improve community engagement, diversity, and inclusion, with connections to LA-based talent and service opportunities, access to exclusive events with other members, on-site workshops, and more.
What are expectations of members?
Upon signing the Pledge, members grant permission to be listed on PledgeLA.org and other online and promotional materials. Additionally, PledgeLA members commit to measuring their progress over time. Finally, members will notify employees and portfolio companies that the company has chosen to participate in the Pledge and encourage them to take the survey.
When will survey results be available?
Baseline aggregate results for VCs will be available in Winter 2019.
Tech companies who have signed the Pledge will participate in an inaugural evaluation in Winter 2019.
