Google grants $12M for promoting racial equities

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said on Wednesday the company will give $12 million in funding to organizations promoting racial equities. He noted workers already raised an additional $2 million that Google will match.

He also called employees to take a moment of silence to honor black lives lost "in an 8 minute and 46 seconds of silence," the exact time George Floyd was dying under the knee of a police officer.

Pichai added he met with a group of Google's Black leaders to talk about developing "initiatives and product ideas that support long-term solutions."
