DEI is our DNA

DEI for the entrepreneurial ecosystem

At iDEIntity, we desire a world where every small firm invests in its DEI.

We ride for diversity, equity, and inclusion - every single time.

Will you ride with us for diversity, equity, and inclusion? Here are some reasons why you should join our #riDEIrs community today!

We are human centered

We innovate using technology as a way to improve human connection and deepen our ties to each other. At the core of diversity, equity, and inclusion is belonging – and our tech promotes belonging for individuals from various backgrounds – from DEI practitioners to entrepreneurs. 

We disrupt the status quo

iDEIntity isn’t here to play it safe. As a pioneer in the DEI nonprofit startup space, we understand the unique niche that we occupy and desire to leave our mark on the state of diversity, equity, and inclusion for years to come  – and commit to innovation and constantly come up with new solutions. 

We engage diversity at all levels

iDEIntity is a virtual home for individuals of varying racial and ethnic identities, gender identities, and more. Through the community we foster, we aim to connect individuals across generational, racial, and cultural lines. We are driven to embody our core values through the environment we foster. 

We pursue impact above all

iDEIntity exists for impact. We have a vision to impact our country’s diversity, equity, and inclusion; to develop a generation of anti-racist founders and entrepreneurs, and to create opportunities within the field of diversity, equity, and inclusion where there are none.
