Apple has announced its new height program $ 100 million to help remove barriers and promote racial equality for people of color in America. The company splits the first round of its program into three projects.
Initially, 25 million will be given to Proper Center, a learning center for Historic Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). Also, a new program with the name will start Apple Developer Academy, which will support student developers in Detroit. Finally, there will be venture capital funding for the founders of the foundation Black and Brown.
As we have said, this is just the first round of the initiative for racial equality and justice announced by the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, in June after their murders George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. The leader of the program is Lisa Jackson, Apple Vice President for Environment and Political and Social Initiatives.
In addition to working with Proper Center, Apple has stated that it will create in the future two grants to support engineering programs at HBCU. The company will also offer scholarships to 100 new students from under-represented communities. Finally, it will invest $ 10 million in Harlem Capital, a New York company to help invest capital in 1,000 different companies from “different” founders over the next 20 years.
