DIVERSITY VC AND ONETECH
Parental Leave Guide
"The business case for diversity and inclusion is strong and growing stronger: it helps drive innovation, challenge entrenched ways of thinking and improve financial performance. In Britain, the statutory parental leave regime can bind both men and women to gender-defined positions upon deciding to start a family: it is the case that men are granted very little time with their newborns, whilst women must sacrifice career progression as assumed primary caregivers.The guide offers actionable recommendations, specific considerations for the venture capital industry, and advice to help expectant parents pitch an enhanced policy to their employer. The vision is that by defining new standards at the nest of innovation, a new benchmark can be set for the next generation of funds, companies and parents."
