Support inclusive economic opportunity
We must ensure that economic opportunity is inclusive—for every country, every community, every business, and every person.
Close the broadband gap
Millions of Americans lack broadband access and 49 percent of people globally don’t have internet access. Our Airband Initiative is on track to extend affordable broadband access to millions of people by July 2022.
Build skills for jobs
We're working toward digital equity: a future in which every job seeker impacted by COVID-19, employee looking to grow their career, student preparing for the workplace, and displaced or crisis-affected individual looking to build their livelihood has access to the skills, technology, and opportunity to succeed.
Grow computer science education
Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) connects teachers with tech industry volunteers in the US and British Columbia to create inclusive, sustainable computer science (CS) programs. To support more equitable access to CS education, we're bringing TEALS to more than 600 high schools in 18 US cities with high populations of Black and African American Students.
AI for Health
Microsoft is investing USD40 million to empower those tackling some of our toughest global health challenges with AI and data science resources to help further medical discovery, uncover global health insights, and increase health equity.
To help address the COVID-19 public health crisis, we've invested an additional $20 million to advance COVID-19 research. We continue to support communities, individuals, and organizations as they respond to and recover from the dual health and economic crises caused by the pandemic.
Empower changemakers worldwide
We make world-class technology and solutions affordable and accessible to nonprofits, humanitarian organizations, and social entrepreneurs around the world, enabling them to accelerate their impact on the causes and communities they serve.
