VC Human Capital Survey
Venture capital diversity, equity, and inclusion
What does the venture capital (VC) industry workforce look like in terms of demographics? What is the current state of VC diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)? The VC Human Capital Survey, powered by Deloitte, Venture Forward, and the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), answers these and other questions for VC firms seeking to expand DEI within both their teams and portfolio companies.
About the VC Human Capital Survey, fourth edition
The VC Human Capital Survey assesses the state of the United States VC industry workforce, with a special focus on DEI. Results from this edition were benchmarked against findings from the first, second, and third editions, which were originally conducted in 2016, 2018, and 2020, respectively.
Conducted in 2022, this fourth edition requested firm demographic information (e.g., firm size and investment stage focus) and demographic information for each employee (e.g., gender, race, and ethnicity). Additionally, firms were asked to provide information regarding their talent management practices and DEI programs.
While there have been other industry assessments of DEI in VC, this survey provides a more holistic perspective. We gathered data from VC firms of various types and sizes, examined DEI for a variety of groups across all types of positions, and assessed firm talent management strategies.

In addition to the report, this dashboard provides information based on the firms surveyed on:
- Who comprises the VC industry workforce
- Whether gender, ethnicity, or age groups have different experiences
- What firms are doing to improve DEI
For optimal viewing, it’s recommended to view the dashboard on a desktop device such as a laptop versus a handheld device such as your mobile phone.
