Match Group (NASDAQ: MTCH) today announced a partnership with RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, to conduct a comprehensive review of sexual misconduct reporting, moderation, and response across Match Group’s dating platforms and to work together to improve current safety systems and tools.
RAINN will collaborate directly with employees across the strategy, product, customer care, engineering, and safety teams to consult and advise on policies and procedures, as well as provide product recommendations to improve existing and future reporting, messaging, and other safety features. RAINN’s expertise and recommendations will further accelerate Match Group’s ongoing work to cultivate safer online communities and provide survivors of sexual assault with the resources and support they need.
The initial phase of the review will focus on Tinder, Hinge, and Plenty of Fish, with best practices to be deployed across Match Group’s portfolio. The partnership will begin immediately and continue through 2021. Any necessary changes, updates and features will roll out shortly thereafter.
