Identifying the disparities across society and the economy, and then making the bold moves crucial to address them, are all critical to this work. As part of its mission to become “the world's most sustainable and just technology company,” HP is doubling down on the power of technology to boost equity and ensure inclusion.

HP is taking bold and comprehensive action, including setting new aggressive 2030 goals, to accelerate equity and inclusion — inside its company, across its supply chain and among the most marginalized communities around the world.
