ServiceNow’s partnership with TMCF is only one of several HBCU initiatives. In March of this year, ServiceNow hosted the company’s first-ever HBCU Connect Hackathon. More than 250 students from 40 HBCUs participated in developing tech solutions in healthcare, housing, wealth creation, digital literacy, and education. The company awarded $60,000 to first and second place winners from Morgan State University, Alcorn State University, Texas Southern University, Tuskegee University, Fisk University, Southern University and Western Governors.

“Education is one the greatest weapons against inequality,” says Karen Pavlin, Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, ServiceNow. “When we equip students with the resources and private sector opportunities to achieve their full potential, we create a generation that’s poised to change the world.”
