Racial Equity and Justice Initiative

We continue to be reminded that certain uncomfortable truths about our society are ignored, silenced, and sidelined. Comfort can no longer come at the expense of change for communities of color.

As global leaders in technology and business, we have an urgent responsibility to dismantle systemic racism and grow opportunities for people confronting it every day.

Our Racial Equity and Justice Initiative (REJI) is a long-term effort to help ensure more positive outcomes for communities of color, particularly for the Black community. We’re beginning with a $100 million commitment. And our commitment will endure until there is enduring change.

REJI Focus Areas

  • Education Greater access to knowledge opens doors.
  • Criminal Justice Reform Liberty and justice. For all.
  • Economic Equality Stronger businesses, thriving communities.

Inequality can’t be ignored. We’re committed to helping create the positive outcomes communities of color deserve.
