Apple has promised $25 Million towards Atlanta’s propel center and inaugurated a developer academy in Detroit. This decision comes as part of Apple’s $100 Million Racial equity and justice initiative, announced earlier in the previous year.
Led by the southern company and tech-giant, Atlanta’s propel center is outlined for historically black colleges and universities. It is deemed to deliver lectures through both offline and online modes. Students will be provided with creative curriculums, all-time tech supports, and career opportunities as well.
Whereas the developer academy in Detroit will be inaugurated, partnering with Michigan state university. The academy aims to develop young black entrepreneurs, coders, and programmers by developing various tech courses, which will be available to everyone irrespective of their academic background.
Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, has this to say on the building of learning centers in these two cities, “We are all accountable to the urgent work of building a more just, more equitable world — and these new projects send a clear signal of Apple’s enduring commitment.”
