Female-founded platform Diversely launched its D&I platform earlier this year, raising US$ 550k in its Pre-Seed round. They want to focus on expansion in the US and the UK. With this round of funding, they have successfully onboard investors from both these nations.
Helen McGuire and Hayley Bakker launched the HR Tech solution to provide HR professionals and recruiters with tools for understanding, tracking, measuring and improving the diversity in their firms. They both have combined 25 years of experience in the field.
The platform has managed to bring in big companies like Robert Walters, Ogilvy, RMI, WeNetwork and Mural, incorporating their strategy in London, Amsterdam, Delaware and Singapore. By focusing on global growth and remote hiring as major components of their strategy. As they bring in new investors to support fast growth, Diversely will be presenting equal opportunities and removing biases in the hiring process.
The last year has seen a 107% increase in D&I leadership roles globally. The time is ripe to help companies measure their progress and also to achieve their goals.
Diversely’s CEO, Helen McGuire has commented: “We are at an exciting point of international growth with Diversely and it’s an honour to welcome seasoned HR, tech and recruitment professionals as angel investors into our business. These individuals are committed to positive change in hiring practices, working with us to introduce Diversely to their extensive network and advising us on our business direction.”
