We see an amazing opportunity to help female- and minority-owned start-ups realize their visions. The multicultural nature of Worcester, which is one of the most diverse cities in the US is an incredible strength. TVF believes it’s critically important to support education for a diverse workforce that can inform and drive businesses to success. Through our efforts to build the next-generation entrepreneurial community, we are committed to attaining diversity in the ventures we support and will be an advocate for underrepresented communities.
The Executive Committee and Advisory Board will continue to search for, and develop, partners that have resources to bolster diversity among start-ups and their workforce. In addition, for new positions at TVF, we will seek to recruit individuals who reflect the diversity of the community we serve and who will contribute to a culture of creativity, collaboration, and inclusion.
