This is a reset moment that demands the business community unleash the full strength of its resources and networks to create a healthier, more equitable world with a digital economy that works for everyone.
At Mastercard, we are committed to having a positive impact with every interaction – not just every transaction. That means infusing decency into everything we do, from how we treat one another within our walls and how we work to build to more inclusive digital economy beyond them.
5G will not only deliver higher speeds, lower latency and greater connectivity. It will spur invention, innovation and ultimately inclusion in ways that test the limits of what we believe to be possible.
Solidarity in action
We are helping close the racial wealth and opportunity gap for black communities across America. As a part of our journey to build an economy that works for everyone, everywhere, we are investing $500M in Black communities over the next five years.
Inclusion through action
Five years ago, Mastercard committed to bring 500 million excluded individuals into the digital economy. We achieved that goal through more than 350 innovative programs across 80 countries. So we’re doubling down on our original commitment to include another 500 million people by 2025, for a total of 1 billion individuals.
Cities are the beating hearts of nations. They are the places where people and cultures collide, expanding perspectives, powering creativity and generating new opportunities. Only by leveraging the superpower of collaboration can we ensure those opportunities are available to everyone.
Start with people and Start Something Priceless™
From the innovators of today to the innovations of tomorrow, we're creating a world where money keeps pace with the way we live, work and do business.
Small business is the connective tissue of our global economy, accounting for 90% of all business and employing roughly 70 percent of the world’s workers. So it comes as no surprise that as the impact of coronavirus has swept across the globe, we have felt their absence profoundly.
Mastercard is focused on helping individuals and businesses weather these challenging times not only by ensuring our network remains secure, resilient and reliable but also by applying our technology, philanthropy, and data science expertise to rebuild healthy communities and ensure that economic growth is inclusive.
