Lam believes successful societies are inclusive societies. Through investments that facilitate equitable access and opportunity, we level the playing field and help communities reach their full potential. This includes:
- Eliminating barriers that prevent vulnerable, marginalized and/or disadvantaged groups from fully participating in social institutions (after-school programs, education systems, workplaces, etc.)
- Leveling the playing field for underserved and underrepresented communities’ long-term economic and physical well-being
- Driving systemic change to break the cycle of inequities and/or designing new systems, processes, and procedures with inclusion in mind
We deliver on our commitment to Inclusive Societies through our programs, including our partnership with the National Consortium of Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering (GEM) to provide graduate-level fellowships to underrepresented candidates in engineering and science; our partnership with Family Giving Tree to provide backpacks and other school supplies to families in the Silicon Valley area who struggle to meet basic needs; and our support of the Singapore Children’s Society’s annual Walk for Our Children to benefit programs and services for vulnerable youth.
