Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Promote fairness and equity across many aspects of society, including economic status, health, and education.
The Cadence Giving Foundation is committed to bringing innovation, technical expertise, and philanthropy together to make a lasting, positive impact in our world. Our Foundation helps support critical needs in our global communities in areas such as diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), climate and sustainability, and access to STEM education.
Giving back to the communities where we live and work is a core part of our history and culture. We are committed to providing our employees with opportunities to do meaningful work that makes a global impact and transforms lives. Cadence employees can leverage their paid Volunteer Time Off and Matching Gifts to help further the mission of our foundation, nonprofit partners, and causes they are passionate about.
We recognize that education and social justice provide a bridge for underrepresented groups to enter the tech field and have equal opportunities. We direct our charitable giving efforts towards increasing access and opportunity for underrepresented and underserved communities, promoting science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) among youth, and protecting our planet to create a more sustainable world.
