Our society is strongest when we stand against bias and inequity.

That’s why Google.org is supporting organizations that use data science and innovative new approaches to advance inclusion and justice for all.

A closer look

The challenge

While considerable progress has been made in protecting human and civil rights worldwide, too many people continue to be excluded or discriminated against based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or citizenship status. Around the world, refugees are facing large barriers to inclusion. People with disabilities continue to be socially marginalized and disproportionately impacted by poverty. And systemic racial bias still pervades the systems designed to protect us; in the US, current incarceration trends indicate that 1 in 3 black men in America can expect to be imprisoned in their lifetime.

Our focus

In our efforts to advance equity and inclusion, our grant funding is currently focused on supporting organizations that are addressing racial bias and inequity in the United States, particularly in the criminal justice system.

Our work

Advancing racial justice

Over the next year, we will invest in organizations that are using data science and innovative new approaches to identify and analyze bias in the criminal justice system, and support movement leaders who are changing the national narrative on race.
