A Commitment to Equity-Centered Community Involvement

In 2020, the Applied Materials Community Affairs team embarked on a year-long journey to evaluate our U.S.-based work in communities of color. This included conducting an Equity Audit examining our personal beliefs as well as our work’s programs and practices. In this blog, I discuss key learnings from the audit and the initial steps we are taking to evolve our program.
