Human Rights Even as we work to deepen our impact , we are focused on expanding the diversity of our workforce
. Building a diverse and inclusive workforce is not only the right thing to do — it also makes good business sense . Diverse teams will always out-innovate and out-perform the market .
We aim to double the number
of Black and African American HP executives by 2025 and reach 50 / 50
gender equality in leadership by 2030 . And while HP is among the top technology companies for women in leadership positions — and nearly 45 % of our U . S . hires in 2021 were racial / ethnic minorities — we are exploring ways to improve inclusive representation at all levels .
Digital Equity We are also committed to helping break down the barriers that exclude many from participating in the digital economy . Nearly 3 billion people
around the world remain offline due to lack of access , affordability , or usability . The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the depth of this issue and even exacerbated it , as many schools and businesses began operating remotely .
That ’ s why , in 2021 , we pledged to accelerate digital equity
for 150 million people by the end of the decade — a goal we aim to meet with the collaboration and support of key priority partners , like Girl Rising , NABU , MIT Solve , and Aspen Digital , through the Digital Equity Accelerator program launched in February 2022 . humanity . Time and again , our people have had the vision to see entirely new possibilities for the role we can play in the world — and the ingenuity to create technology that inspires ambitious progress .
That vision and ingenuity is reflected in the progress we are making against our Sustainable Impact goals today . And the impact on the world — and our business — is clear . In fact , our Sustainable Impact initiatives helped the company win more than US $ 3.5 billion in new sales in fiscal year 2021 — a three-fold increase over the prior year . Simply put , when we innovate with purpose , we create the conditions for both business and society to thrive .
I am inspired by the progress we are making toward becoming the world ’ s most sustainable and just technology company . And I hope our success spurs other businesses to join us in creating the future we want to see — for our companies , our families , and our communities .
