There is an urgent need to confront issues of race, inequality, and social justice, and to build a deeper awareness that promotes empathy and understanding. Critical issues must be faced, steps must be taken, and changes must be made in order to effectively address the underlying, systemic issues which give rise to social injustice.
At Coursera, we believe that learning is a source of human progress and a force to promote positive change. For anyone who is eager to engage with these issues, who seeks a way to gather knowledge and apply their learnings to the advancement of our global community, and who is ready to take their next steps forward, we have curated a collection of courses that cover a broad range of social justice topics.
Coursera is committed to providing the most relevant and valuable learning opportunities possible in order to further the cause of social justice in our world. As we continue to add existing courses to this collection, we are additionally pledging financial support to our partners to create new content, to further amplify those voices who have researched racial discrimination and social justice for decades, and who are recognized thought leaders.
