Mathison Raises $25 Million To Launch the First DEI Operating System to Help Employers Make Progress on Diversity Hiring and Advancement

Mathison’s holistic DEI platform has seen 800%+ growth over the past two years

Mathison, the only solution to provide employers with an end-to-end Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) hiring and retention platform, has announced  the close of its $25 million Series A led by F-Prime Capital, with participation from Bain Capital Ventures, SemperVirens, ANIMO Ventures, GTM Fund, Gaingels and JP Morgan. The new injection of funding will be used to continue to build out our data and analytics capabilities, scale our go-to-market team and increase our collective impact with employers. As part of the round, Jon Lin of F-Prime Capital joins the board.This is a moment when leaders want to make real progress on diversity, but miss the insights and capabilities needed to take action. According to a study conducted by Deloitte, 69% of executives say diversity is their most important priority right now, 93% of employers lack a robust diversity hiring solution, 76% of them haven’t set diversity goals and nearly half of those who have goals are not yet confident they will achieve them.“Existing solutions are disjointed and their high price tags have made DEI cost prohibitive and operationally cumbersome to manage,” said Arthur Woods, Co-Founder of Mathison. “After leading years of research across hundreds of employers, we recognized employers were missing the proper insights and systems to support their DEI efforts at scale. We designed Mathison so employers could build a holistic DEI strategy that they could immediately mobilize into action and continuously manage across their organization.”

Mathison has pioneered the first DEI Operating System to give employers a single place to manage their:

  • DEI measurement, benchmarking and reporting
  • Diversity sourcing to expand the hiring pipeline
  • DEI training and tools to shift behavior and reduce bias

Our community and movements have galvanized around our efforts to strive for more,” said Dave Walsh, CEO and Co-Founder of Mathison. “Our system is designed to instill real meaningful change and we are excited to use this funding to propel the DEI efforts of thousands of organizations to create a more equitable future”.Mathison uses its own product for DEI and includes 50% women, 72% working parents and 50% people of color on its management team.
