We have a long history of supporting the communities where we live and work. We care about creating opportunities for our employees to match their skills and passions with nonprofit needs and volunteer opportunities.
Today more than ever we live in a world dependent on connection. Synaptics technology and innovation is at the core of many devices that enable connection but we know that the true connection and the lifeblood of the company is the human connection. Our employees, families, communities, and customer partnerships are the heartbeat of the company and we strive to strike a balance between our dedication to the work we do every day and to serve the communities where we thrive. I am proud to lead Synaptics through the next stage of growth and connection to the world around us.
As a company and as individuals we can make a difference. And we’ve set ourselves the challenge to help bridge socioeconomic opportunity gaps with a focus on the education and well-being of children from underprivileged backgrounds.
Through literacy and educational equity we can be a part of the catalyst that ends systemic racism, poverty, and social inequality. Synaptics supports initiatives like Reading Partners, and other organizations striving to bridge the educational divide. Our annual Charity Challenge funds organizations providing young people with tools to succeed in technology fields such as Black Girls Code and Latinas in Stem.
COVID-19 Response Efforts We responded to the COVID-19 pandemic through donations to combat the pandemic as well as donations to support local communities needing support during COVID.
We support the passion of our employees around the world who want to give back to global causes that they feel are important, and positively impacting peoples lives.
If we are to stay competitive as a company, then we need to build a scientifically literate citizenry and a bank of highly skilled, STEM-literate employees. Our employees invest their time in supporting efforts such as The Tech Challenge in San Jose and Junior Achievement in China, providing children with the scientific knowledge to prepare them not only for future employment, but to impact our world with positive innovation, design and technology.
