What I love about Project Everest Ventures is there are a lot of female leaders within the leadership team and with the core team of the organisation. Project Everest Ventures and the community as a whole has a strong stance on ensuring equality and diversity including for LGBTQI+ and ethnic minority communities. Project Everest has identified areas where they could improve their diversity and are openly working towards increasing who is able to access the internship opportunities.
Project Everest is a social enterprise and hence is driven to reach equality in every way. The people who work their come from all different ethnicities and backgrounds with many of the leaders and people in upper management being women.
