Mobilizing to Improve Racial Equity

H.B. Fuller is proud to support initiatives around the world that prepare the next generation of leaders and innovators and promote diversity and inclusive values across society, schools and business.
One good example took place in the U.S. The Black Tech Geeks (BTG), a program of 30K in St. Paul, Minnesota, is committed to connecting Black youth to STEM and computer science careers and reducing recidivism in the juvenile court system. 
BTG offers practical technological education and employment for teenagers living in poverty, with 50% of jobs going to teens involved in the juvenile delinquency system. The goal is to help students take control of their futures while expanding the number of African Americans who pursue a career in computer science fields.

“For many of these kids, this is the first time someone has trusted them and believed in them. The transformation in their confidence level is amazing!” – Kevin Robinson, Executive Director and co-founder, 30K, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Since 1986, H.B. Fuller has been supporting communities around the world where our employees live and work through the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation. Each year, we award more than $1.3 million in grants to support STEM education and youth leadership development, as well as other causes selected by employees. In 2020, the Racial Equity Fund was established. And by identifying and helping to fund organizations like 30K, H.B. Fuller is addressing long-term, systemic racism in our communities and supporting real, lasting change. Grantmaking is just one way we support the communities where our employees live and work.
