ExecOnline Raises A $45 Million Series D To Make The C-Suite More Diverse
Enterprise leadership training platform ExecOnline has raised a $45 million Series D, led by OMERS Growth Equity, bringing the company’s total funding to $87 million.
Cofounder and CEO Stephen Bailey wants to democratize access to leadership grooming within corporate organizations.
“We are moving away from a world where in order to gain access to Stanford, Wharton, Columbia or any of the schools we work with, you no longer need to be tapped on the shoulder for special privileges reserved for the few, which are often influenced by unconscious bias,” Bailey told The Plug.
“As you provide access for leaders to take control of their career journey you move to a world where you’ll see more women and more underrepresented minorities advance in the organization,” Bailey said.
