Covid - 19 has left over 42 million Americans without jobs over the last few weeks — disproportionately impacting low - income communities, women, and people of color.

Tens of thousands of people come to us every day seeking to reskill and find new jobs but don’t have laptops to take advantage of learning opportunities online.

We’re partnering with D&I leaders and organizations to leverage our platforms towards raising over $500,000 and giving away thousands of laptops to these communities impacted by Covid-19.

We want to enable those who plan on using theselaptops to reskill and re-enter the workforce with a strong foundation that will last them a lifetime.

We believe with a collective effort, we can help millions of Americans acquire new skills and prepare for the Great Rehiring.
