Sundar Pichai Unveils “Grow with Google” and Commits $1 Billion to Non-Profits to Train American workers
And now, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai announced $1 Billion support to non-profits over 5 years to train American workers and businesses in a launched event Grow with Google. He says,
At Google, our mission is to make sure that information serves everyone, not just a few. A child in a school here in Pittsburgh can access the same information on Google as a professor at Carnegie Mellon. In the end, the Internet is a powerful equalizer, capable of propelling new ideas and people forward.
Pichai’s speech concluded with these pointers:
- We’re launching Grow with Google, a new initiative to help Americans with the skills they need to get a job or grow their business.
- Globally, we will provide $1 billion in grants over the next five years to nonprofits working on three key areas that we think will boost opportunity.
- Finally, Googlers can volunteer 1 million hours to help these front-line organizations.
