PayPal CEO Dan Schulman recently hosted a discussion with Alphonso David, the first person of color and first civil rights lawyer to serve as President of the Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBTQ+ civil rights organization in the world. In the conversation Alphonso discussed getting people invested in the struggle for equality—a goal that is increasingly relevant in today’s times.
PayPal President & CEO, Dan Schulman, sent the following email to all PayPal employees discussing the company’s $550 million commitment to support Black communities throughout the U.S.
PayPal’s core values are inclusion and equality – and we strongly stand against discrimination, racism, hatred and violence. As a company, we have been in deep conversation during this difficult time, determined to stand with our Black colleagues and their communities – and working together on how we can contribute to meaningful change.
As a company whose core value is inclusion, the PayPal community is committed to equality and justice – and these commitments have never been more important than they are today. Hatred, discrimination and injustice are unacceptable and have no place in our societies.
Today, we’re continuing our support for COVID-19 relief by joining with partners and organizations around the world to amplify and support #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5th, a new global day of giving and unity.
