Carta Equity Summit

Every year Carta hosts the Carta Equity Summit—this free, virtual event, along with the release of the Carta Equity report, presents an opportunity to evaluate progress, understand challenges, and define solutions to the equity gap. It is also a chance to showcase the founders, investors, operators, and leaders who should be the norm, not the exception.

Watch highlights from all the panels, discussions, and fireside chats from the 2022 summit and read Carta Equity Reports dating back to 2018, which detail equity ownership by race, gender, geography, and ethnicity.

We’re working towards the 2023 Carta Equity Summit—stay tuned for updates on next year’s event!

Create more owners
In 2018, the #ANGELS hypothesized that the equity gap was worse than the salary gap. Carta has the data to help track and analyze what they called #TheGapTable. Together, we created the first ever report on equity distribution by gender and have continued to create it every year since. Equity is the largest lever for wealth creation in Silicon Valley and beyond; we believe it should be distributed equitably.
