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.

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. Since then, we’ve allocated 100% of that funding and are already seeing meaningful results.

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.

Celebrating pioneering contributions to an inclusive economy

PayPal’s Maggie Lena Walker Award celebrates the achievements of women from underrepresented groups in the U.S. who are economically empowering those in their community and creating a more inclusive world. This award program is an extension of our mission to foster an inclusive economy and builds on our $535 million commitment to racial equity and closing the racial wealth gap.
