We are committed to putting our people, products, and philanthropic capital to work where they can make the greatest impact on our society and our planet. One of the most effective ways we can multiply our impact is through strong partnerships with nonprofit organizations in the communities where we live and work.
Our Giving Pledge states that by 2030, we’ll give 2 percent of NI’s annual, pre-tax profits to charitable causes in the form of monetary and product donations or discounts. To complement this initiative, NIers will spend 1 percent of their work hours volunteering in their communities.
To meet our pledge and advance the goals outlined in our 2030 Corporate Impact Strategy, we focus our giving in the following areas:
Changing the Faces of Engineering: We are committed to supporting aspiring engineers and increasing the diversity of the engineering talent pipeline. Each year through 2030, we will advance STEM education initiatives serving underrepresented or economically disadvantaged students. And we will invest $3.4 million globally in such initiatives over the next four years.
We support organizations who bring hands-on, immersive STEM learning experiences to economically disadvantaged populations, girls, people of color, and other groups underrepresented in the engineering industry.
Building an Equitable and Thriving Society: We are committed to increasing equity and wellbeing among our employees and in the communities where we live and work. Each year through 2030, we will support equity and economic opportunity initiatives through monetary and product donations and volunteering.
We support organizations dedicated to promoting economic advancement and reducing racial, gender, and other social inequities.
Engineering a Healthy Planet: We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and working with our customers and communities to promote healthy, biodiverse ecosystems. Each year through 2030, we will discount or donate NI products to organizations developing green technology and will volunteer for environmental initiatives.
We support organizations who are addressing biodiversity and/or climate change, especially in underserved and economically disadvantaged communities.
