Brennan Hatton & Rick Martin

Equal Reality

About Their Business & Career: 2020 brought about a racial reckoning after the murder of George Floyd sparked Black Lives Matter protests across the nation. And with that, a move to prioritize DEI initiatives took over corporate boardrooms. But one company that didn’t need to rethink its position around DEI was Equal Reality. Founded in 2017, Brennan Hatton and Rick Martin took a leap of faith, pioneering the industry as the first and only company in the world creating VR training for diversity and inclusion. Since then, they have grown to offer an entire VR learning experience library focused on everything from unconscious bias to workplace bullying; their technology has been adopted by major corporations from Amazon to J.P. Morgan; and their team has won numerous awards.

Why They Made the Worthy 100: We think Equal Reality’s product speaks for itself, but if you need more details: In the wake of COVID, the company is now working on education around the systemic bias in our health care system.
