Dow Chemical Co. has announced a US$5 million investment in Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Dow’s donation will provide programing and support of initiatives that develop the Black STEM pipeline. The investment will be seeded by a $500,000 contribution in 2020. Dow will follow that initial investment with an additional $4.6 million through 2024.

“Representation and diverse perspectives are key drivers for innovation and business success,” said Karen S. Carter, Dow chief human resources and inclusion officer. “This investment shows our commitment to strengthening and diversifying the American manufacturing and STEM pipeline and attracting a workforce equipped to lead our company into the future.”
