EUROPEAN WOMEN IN VC IDC #EUR148997722 © IDC 2022 32 Despite slow progress in achieving gender equity in Venture Capital, recent efforts by large investment houses are starting to drive change. Focused efforts to recruit diverse managers or board members, to increase the funding for women and diverse-owned enterprises and those focusedondiverse customers, showreal potential for sustainable change. We must all work together to ensure the VC market continues to make progress in achieving greater diversity at the General and LimitedPartner levels, and continue to focus on investing inenterprises that are diverse—entrepreneurs, funds, investors and other providers. Advancing and creating pathways toGeneral and LimitedPartner levels should be a top priority for all VC funds. EY believes that the ability to bring greater diversity in leadership and the VC community will in turn drive greater returns on investments and expand the opportunities for all kinds of innovation.
