Liberty Hardware, a business unit of Masco Corporation, has given out $75,000 in charitable donations this year to nonprofit organizations focusing on diversity and inclusion in the workplace, including Experiment in Self-Reliance.

The donations are part of Masco’s Million Differences campaign, an initiative in which Masco Corporation, through its business units, is allocating $1,000,000 of its philanthropic funding in 2018 to support organizations across the country that are working to break down barriers to diversity and inclusion in America’s corporate workforce through education or career resources.

Liberty Hardware’s grants have benefitted a range of organizations local to its employees in North Carolina and Chicago, ranging from women’s career services to educational opportunities aimed at students of color. The full list of beneficiaries includes:

*NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad

*Experiment in Self-Reliance

*The Women’s Resource Center of Greensboro

*YMCA of Northwest North Carolina (Black Achievers and Latino Achievers Programs)

*Junior Achievement of the Triad

*The Jerry Long Family YMCA/Latino Community Services Program

*Guilford College (The Bryan Lecture Series)

*Junior League of Greensboro

*Children at the Crossroads Foundation


*CARA Chicago

Employees have also been encouraged to directly engage with these nonprofits and their missions, whether by attending sponsored lectures and conferences, volunteering as mentors, or attending lunch and learns to grow their knowledge of the organizations.
