Summary (IA Generated)

Last June, Apple committed $100 million to a Racial Equity and Justice Initiative (REJI).

“We’re launching REJI’s latest initiatives with partners across a broad range of industries and backgrounds — from students to teachers, developers to entrepreneurs, and community organizers to justice advocates — working together to empower communities that have borne the brunt of racism and discrimination for far too long.

The company will contribute $25 million to the Propel Center, an innovation and leaning hub for Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Students will be able to follow different educational tracks focused on artificial intelligence, agricultural technologies, social justice, entertainment, app development, augmented reality, design and create arts and entrepreneurship.

This isn’t just a monetary investment for Apple as employees will help develop curricula and provide mentorship as well.

In Downtown Detroit, the company will also open an Apple Developer Academy focused on young Black entrepreneurs.

Apple is trying to reach 1,000 students per year with these two programs.

The third effort is focused on investment opportunities for Black and Brown entrepreneurs.

Apple will invest $10 million with Harlem Capital, a VC firm based in New York.

As you can see, Apple’s Racial Equity and Justice Initiative is an on-going effort that requires evaluating new opportunities constantly.
