The UPS Foundation announced it will award over $10 million in grants to advance diversity and inclusion programmes this year. The grants will be awarded to 44 organisations that deliver projects focused on economic empowerment, education, employability, and social and gender equality.
‘We are honored to collaborate and fund organizations that drive measurable change around the world,” said Eduardo Martinez, president of The UPS Foundation and chief diversity and inclusion officer at UPS. “Advancing the diversity and inclusion movement is a cornerstone of our company’s values. Our support for initiatives that will make a real difference in people’s lives in our communities is an extension of our dedication to help advance social and gender equality around the globe.”
This has increased from their $7.7 million global diversity and inclusion grants awarded in 2017 to 39 organisations that support economic empowerment, initiatives to empower women and girls, and, workplace inclusion.
