DENSO announced today the creation of a $50,000 grant it will award to a U.S.-based public charity focused on supporting diversity in technology. The grant supports DENSO’s commitment to support diversity, which helps drive innovation in mobility and advanced technology fields.

Starting today, DENSO is seeking proposals that touch all areas of future mobility, including autonomy, artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and/or connected services. To apply, proposals must be for programs that offer hands-on, interactive outreach; engage a diverse or underserved community; provide opportunities for innovative thinking; and provide an environment for problem-solving and team-building.

“We want to inspire and foster diversity, particularly in the automotive space, because it helps drive innovation,” said Denise Carlson, vice president and executive lead of Diversity & Inclusion for DENSO in North America. “We feel a responsibility to engage and support organizations in our communities that further those efforts. This grant allows us to identify programs that mirror our own long-term goals and ensure more workplace diversity and inclusivity to set the stage for increased knowledge, strengthened teamwork and accelerated innovation.”

To be eligible for the grant, organizations must have operated programs for at least two years; the equivalent of at least one full-time employee; revenues of more than $100,000; an annual budget of less than $2 million; and 501(c)3 status. Organizations interested in applying can find more details on the application portal. Proposals are due on Sept. 27, 2019.

The recipient of the grant will be announced at DENSO’s and Inforum’s networking event at CES in January 2020. DENSO partnered with Inforum, a nonprofit dedicated to accelerating the careers of women and building talent initiatives at companies, to connect talented women and men and advance diversity and inclusion within the automotive, technology and manufacturing sectors.
