Dan’s discussion with John Hope Bryant comes against the backdrop of a global pandemic, record unemployment, and a massive movement to address systemic racism.
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.
In a conversation at TED2020 Uncharted, PayPal President and CEO Dan Schulman spoke about the future of capitalism, saying “in many ways it’s the best economic system that I know of, but like everything, it needs an upgrade. It needs tuning.”
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.
It was a nice surprise to get this message from our partners at the Phoenix Suns – recognizing PayPal’s role in communities around the world to help people make safe payments to family and friends, buy products to entertain our children, have food and hot meals delivered, or even contribute to charities that are helping combat COVID-19.
