Dan Schulman

We need dialogue, change, education and action. We must all do our part to agitate for social justice, so we can create an environment where we are all safe, respected and can aspire to be our best selves.

— Dan Schulman, President and CEO, PayPal

Taking action for racial equity and social justice

As a company, we believe that financial health and security are essential to ensuring that everyone can live their lives with dignity and respect, and can pursue a better future for their families and communities. With this mission and our extraordinary employees and resources, PayPal is uniquely equipped to make a distinctive difference by addressing the systemic economic inequality and racial injustice that is afflicting the U.S. and many other countries across the globe.

In June 2020, we announced a $535 million commitment to support Black and underserved communities and businesses, as well as invest in diversity and inclusion at PayPal.

We remain committed to promoting inclusion around the world

PayPal promotes activities, policies and programs to further equity and inclusion globally. We have fought for legislation in the U.S. protecting Dreamers and in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as well as inclusive legislation, such as the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act and the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. We advocate for LGBTQ rights in housing, employment and education championing the U.N. LGBTI Standards of Conduct and joining the HRC Business Coalition for the Equality Act.

Our Diversity & Inclusion Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are also engaged in meaningful community work to advance inclusion. For example, we provided web services to over 100 LGBTQ+ organizations around the world in 2019 through our partnership with Out in Tech Digital Corps. We also launched a new Champion Program in collaboration with the National Society of Black Engineers that hosted 300+ students at 12 events across the U.S. to engage and recruit underrepresented students. Additionally, we hosted the first ever community Entrepreneur Deck Workshop in Dublin, Ireland with African Diaspora businesses to learn about online payments and tools to grow their business.
