The Candor Clause is an open-source legal disclosure for inclusion in fundraising documents to foster conversations between founders and investors about gender equality. The disclosure requires all parties to disclose if any of the investors, members of their fund or their representatives have ever been accused of sexual assault, sexual harassment or sexually-inappropriate behavior.
