For Nike, it was time to take the learnings from the North American work and expand the vision abroad.
Inspired by the Black Community Commitment in North America, Nike launched the first international investment supporting the The black community in London. Why London? As a major global city, and one sharing a rich legacy with Nike, London represents an opportunity to use the passion, insights, and direct involvement of Nike employees to advance equality for the city’s Black communities. Following the aims of this project, Nike got involved with London nonprofit organizations keen in their fields, such as Caramel Rock, to create enhance Black Communities through projects in the city, emphasizing work related to sports, equity, education, mentorship, mental health, and much more.
